The Montgomery & Associates Scholarship


The Montgomery & Associates Scholarship was established to create a scholarship in the College of Science to benefit undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in Hydrology and Atmospheric Science degree programs and in Geosciences degree programs. Initial funding for the scholarship endowment was made possible through generous gifts by M&A Founder, Errol L. Montgomery, and Montgomery & Associates donors, but any individual, corporation, or foundation may make additional gifts to the Fund at any time.
