Community Service Scholarship 

2022 Scholarship Information

United Way of Beaverhead County believes strongly in the power of education and works throughout the year to support every level of education from the earliest age to adulthood.  A keystone of our support is the annual commitment to award a scholarship to an outstanding graduate of each of the high schools in our service area.
