Ace Scholarship raises $2.6 Million

Posted: Updated:

Organizers with the Ace Scholarship program believe every Montanan deserves a quality education, which is why they raised $2.6 million for low and moderate income Native American families.

The program provides students with better tools and education opportunities, including up to 50% of private school tuition.

In 2012, Ace was able to provide scholarships to 520 children in 47 private schools across the state.

They increased assistance to 650 students for 2013, including $100,000 in funding for Native American schools.

This year's goal is 700 students, and organizers also said that they hope to increase the number each year.
