PADDY DAMSCHEN MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP FUND

  • How To Apply: Will be available online around April/May
  • Other

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.

Eligibility
• 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.

Zander is a great fan of wrestling. Being a trial lawyer is very similar to wrestling; you prevail by hard work. Zander has spent the majority of his adult life in front of juries handling all types of claims for injured persons in a statewide litigation practice. He and his sons, Anders and Drew, who are also lawyers, are former wrestlers and the sport has served them all very well.

The purpose of the Blewett Wrestling Scholarship is to award $1000 to the wrestler in Class AA, Class A and Class B/C who has displayed the best combined qualities of wrestling and academic achievement. The award will go to one senior high school wrestler in each class around Montana who best qualifies. You do not have to win the state championship to qualify for this scholarship; if you do win, you must still exhibit strong academic achievement. The winner of each class must attend a college somewhere in the United States and a check in the amount of $1000 will be sent to that college to help defray the cost of tuition.

A typed application must be post-marked by March 29, 2019 and mailed to the address below. Applications must be fully completed to receive consideration.
