MSA Scholarship Program

MSA Scholarship

Each year MSA sponsors a $500 scholarship.

Requirements for considerations are as follows:
Applicants must be a member of Montana Snowmobile Association (MSA) and have been accepted to an accredited post-secondary academic or vocational/technical school.  Students with non-traditional education, individuals returning to the work force and continuing students are encouraged to apply.

He or She will submit an essay for judging.  The essay topic will differ each year.  The essay topic will be determined by the WESTERN CHAPTER SCHOLARSHIP COMMITTEE.  MSA’s Scholarship Winner’s Essay will be eligible to compete for the WESTERN CHAPTER SCHOLARSHIP.

2015 ESSAY TOPIC is:  You have been asked by your state snowmobile association to meet with your state representative at the state capitol to talk about snowmobiling. You have a 15 minute appointment to emphasize snowmobiling. What three points (another word here might be more appropriate than points) would you discuss (again, perhaps another word rather than discuss) with him/her and why did you pick these three points?"

In other words "What are you going to talk about at this appointment?"

The Western Chapter of Snowmobile Associations Inc. will again be offering a scholarship to either a graduating high school senior or a person currently enrolled in college.  This will be a $2,000 grant and will be given to the winner regardless of other grants or scholarships that the student may also receive. Essays will be judged on depth of content, clarity, organization and persuasiveness.

Requirements are as follows:

  1. The applicant must be a member of a snowmobile association/federation that is also a member of the Western Chapter of Snowmobile Associations Inc.
  2. The applicant must submit the completed application form.
  3. The applicant must submit a resume detailing his/her involvement in snowmobiling as well as extra-curricular activities.
  4. The applicant must include an essay (subject on the application form).  The essay should be a minimum of 2 pages double-space and typed. Keep in mind that a well-researched, comprehensive essay will undoubtedly be significantly longer and we certainly encourage that.
  5. The application must be received by the Association/Federation by March 17, 2015.

The winner of the Western Chapter Scholarship will be announced at the International Snowmobile Congress in June of 2015 in Niagra Falls, NY.

The funding for this scholarship comes from the financial support of the Member Associations and donations received throughout the year.  This scholarship is available to both the United States and the Canadian snowmobilers involved in Associations/Federation who are members in good standing with the Western Chapter of Snowmobile Associations Inc.

An alternate will be picked if the winner should decide not to enroll in college.
