MISSOULA – Seniors at 150 Montana high schools will have the opportunity to send in an application to any college in Montana free of charge until the end of the week.

The week-long event is organized by GEAR UP and the Montana Office of the Commissioner of Higher Education.

This is the sixth year of Montana’s College Application Week initiative and its goal is to offer Montana high schoolers a chance to save money while getting a better idea of what school they would like to attend after high school.

Over 3,500 applications were sent into Montana post-secondary education institutions for free in 2017 thanks to the program.
