2023-2024 Roy F. Simperman Math & Science Scholarship Currently Enrolled Students

Wednesday, September 14, 2022

The Roy F. Simperman Math and Science Scholarship was developed in 2009.  The scholarship is funded by Roy F. Simperman (Class of 1962) to provide funds to exceptionally needy Montana students who could not otherwise afford to attend Carroll College.  The funds that support these scholarships were obtained through capitalistic ventures in America’s free enterprise system which is shielded and guided by the principles depicted in the Constitution of the United States. The scholarship is awarded to equalize the cost of attending Carroll College relative to the state of Montana public colleges and universities. 


Up to 3 scholarships for each junior and senior class level will be awarded at a maximum student award of $10,000 for academic year 2023-2024.   Scholarships will not exceed federal financial need and will consider all eligible federal grants and institutional merit aid first.  The scholarship awarded when added to other institutional and federal gift aid may not exceed tuition, fee, room and board.  All scholarships will be of one year duration. However, the grants could be renewed through an application process through the committee.  Criteria will be ability to succeed.  Applications are reviewed by a committee made up of two local bank presidents, a Carroll faculty member, a community member at-large and a local doctor.
