The University of Providence (Great Falls, MT) women’s basketball program is in search of managers for the 2019-2020 season. A $12,000 scholarship will be offered for being part of the team. Student manager tasks are very limited and would only require 3-5 hours a week of students’ time. Basketball knowledge or playing experience are not necessary to fill this position.

There are a few stipulations about this scholarship.

  • First, it must a a new student to the University of Providence, not a returning student.
  • The student would be considered a “basketball recruit” not recruited by any other department on our university (admissions, athletics, etc.).
  • Also, it can’t be paired with any other scholarships ie: a student already coming here for soccer, then doubling up the scholarship as a basketball manager as well.

Please contact the women’s assistant coach, Krystal Smith at

On March 8, 2011, Helena lost one of its greatest fans of high school athletics, especially high school track and field. Paddy Damschen was an amazing mother, an avid runner herself, a community-minded woman, and a great supporter of track and field. Paddy also believed that any young person could achieve their dreams and goals with the support of their family, friends, and community.
In honor of this outstanding member of the Helena community, and the track and field community, her family began the Paddy Damschen Memorial Scholarship Fund (referred to as the PDM Fund from this point forward) in 2011. The fund was established for the purpose of providing scholarship money to high school seniors that have competed in high school track and field, have exhibited a commitment to their athletics, academics, and community, and are
entering their first year of higher education.

The PDM Fund’s goal is to provide assistance to worthy students in furthering their education. PDM scholarship funds are intended to assist students with the cost of tuition and fees. Funds cannot be used for housing or any other incurred expenses. Funds must be used during the regular school year and cannot be used for summer courses. If tuition is paid in full by any other scholarship, grant or other financial aid, the PDM scholarship may be used for books. The scholarship winner will be reimbursed upon receipt by the PDM Fund of a receipt showing proof of textbook purchases.

• Applicants must be a permanent resident of Montana.
• Scholarships are to be utilized at institutions of higher learning. (Additional points will be
given for those attending Montana-based institutions.)
• Students must be enrolled as a full-time student during the 2018-2019 school year
(excluding summer session)
• Students must have participated in track and field in high school for at least 2 years.
• Applicants must be on the varsity track and field team for at least their senior year.
