George M. Dennison Civic Engagement Scholarship

2020 Winners  Announced!

Eleven students across the state of Montana have been awarded the 2020 George M. Dennison Civic Engagement Scholarship. The scholarship honors students at MTCC affiliate campuses who have volunteered significant time, energy and resources – while pursuing a degree or certificate – to projects that make a meaningful difference in the lives of others. Half of the funds for each $1000 scholarship have been donated in memory of George M. Dennison by Jane Dennison and sons, Rick and Robert Dennison, and their families. George Dennison was a tireless champion of service and the co-founder of Montana Campus Compact. The other half of each scholarship is matched by the winners’ institutions.

This fall we had a highly competitive group apply for the scholarship. Every applicant is doing exemplary volunteer work and making significant differences in their institutions, communities and the world. Following are the winners:

  • Lee Adler, University of Montana
  • Danny Eder, City College MSU Billings
