The Cook Scholarship Program was established in 1973 by the late Frank Hervey Cook, a lifelong Montana resident and a 1919 graduate of St. Paul's School. The scholarship provides funding for tuition costs at St. Paul's School to worthy Montana boys and girls. In addition, financial assistance is given to scholarship recipients for the associated costs of attending the college of their choice.
As part of this opportunity, Cook Scholars are expected to give back to Montana through a minimum commitment of 80 hours of community service to benefit their home state, along with an additional summer of sevice to their home communities, between acceptance to St. Paul's School and the summer following their sophomore year of college.
Since 1973, more than 76 students traveled from Montana to St. Paul's as Cook Scholars and two as Hervey Scholars, and their successes have been noteworthy. They represent a wide range of cities and towns, and winners come from every imaginable location in the state. This is truly a scholarship opportunity for all Montana students.
