Rural Education Teacher Scholarship


Triangle Communications is proud to partner with Montana Telecommunications Association to bring this unique opportunity to rural communities.  Recruiting and retaining good, quality educators in rural schools is a significant problem in Montana. To help draw good educators to schools struggling to hire and retain teachers, each year the Montana Telecommunications Association (MTA) will award one $1,500 scholarship to a current or incoming educator who commits to teaching for three consecutive years in eligible schools.  The scholarship will renew for two additional years - for a total of $4,500 over three years for each winning educator. 

Triangle Communications will select a finalist to submit to MTA.  If Triangle Communications finalist is not selected by MTA, Triangle Communications will award a one-time $1,000 scholarship to the teacher selected as the finalist.
