Anne Morand Memorial Scholarship Fund
The C.M. Russell Museum established a scholarship fund to honor the late Anne Morand, the museum’s former chief curator and executive director. The Anne Morand Memorial Scholarship Fund will be awarded to an outstanding high school student in Cascade County, Montana, who plans to earn a baccalaureate degree from an accredited institution of higher education in fine arts or arts-related fields. The intention of this program is to enable increasing numbers of students to attend the colleges and universities of their choice to develop academic skills and leadership talents in museum-related fields. The long-term goal is to encourage funding from other sources (private and institutional) to contribute to this fund, so that the museum may award additional scholarships in the future.
The Anne Morand Memorial Scholarship Fund will award $5,000 a year for four years to a worthy Cascade County high school senior who plans to pursue a degree in one of the following disciplines: art history, American history, art education, library science, museum studies, or fine arts. The Morand Memorial Scholarship Fund is intended to complement the financial aid the student receives from his/her college or university for tuition and other education expenses (for example, books, housing, art supplies).
The application process and budget will be administered through the education department at the C.M. Russell Museum.
