The Power of Philanthropy

Scholarships are perhaps the most significant way donors touch the lives of students. More than 85% of MSU Billings students receive some type of financial assistance.

I think it’s outstanding that you are so kind and willing to recognize and assist with the academic efforts of science students. I personally promise to make every cent of this scholarship count as I strive to complete my education in the most honorable way possible. You have made the burden of financing a college education that much lighter, and I can’t thank you enough.Drew Christina, Chemistry major and Yellowjackets Baseball Pitcher

The Power of Community

Financial support for students ripples through the lives of others, creating a brighter future for the people and professions served by MSU Billings graduates.

Throughout my clinical experiences, one of the things that most impressed me about the nurses serving Billings has been how eager they are to share their knowledge with those entering the profession. It has taught me that nursing truly is a combination of knowledge and caring, critical thinking and passion. Your gift has helped me pursue my dream of being part of a profession where we have the opportunity daily to impact lives. I truly feel fortunate for the growth and experiences that higher education has provided me. Thank you for your kindness and for your continued support of students at MSU Billings.Ciera Bellamy, Nursing major

The Power of Innovation

Annual gifts encourage continued professional development of MSU Billings’ ambitious faculty and ensure faculty attend conferences and complete research in their fields.

The Power of You

Marie Badovinac is a shining example of how one person can change the lives of generations of students. Marie established a scholarship to honor the memory of her father, John “Johnny” Badovinac, who instilled in his daughter the importance of higher education. As a first generation student, Marie recalled how difficult attending college can be both emotionally and financially. In 2015, the charitable goal of the Badovinac family was realized with a $2.5 million gift over 20 years to help the current generation of rural high school students seek vocational training.
