A. Scholarships in the amount of $5,000.00, $1,000.00 and $800.00 are awarded by the GMC Foundation each year. Financial need is not a requirement for scholarship approval. Scholarships are paid to the college, for the benefit of the recipient student.

C. Students must be registered as a full-time student in a baccalaureate accredited program or graduate level and have completed half of their program.

E. For those students interested in the MJB Scholarship, preference will be given to those employed by Glendive Medical Center at the time of application.
F. Three personal references must be submitted, using the on-line recommendation form, or mailed in sealed envelopes to the Foundation Director. At least one reference must be from an instructor. Sorry, references from relatives are not acceptable. It is the student's responsibility to ensure these references are received.

L. Recipients must remain enrolled full time for the year they received the award. If the Foundation becomes aware that a student is no longer enrolled, the Foundation Director will notify the college and request return of the scholarship award.
