The University of Montana Western offers numerous scholarships. We have one application for all scholarships. The priority deadline is in January, though actual due dates are much later. The Helm Memorial Scholarship is offered to UMW students who have declared English as their major or minor. Returning students are eligible. This scholarship is currently worth $1,000. It was established by a well-respected former English professor at UMW.
