University of Montana Community Service Award

Alumni and friends from Montana and neighboring states are selected by a committee comprised of UM administrators and staff for the Community Service Award for their outstanding service and commitment to their respective communities and to the University itself. Recipients are invited to a Grizzly football home game where they are guests of the President at a pre-game event (if one is held) and watch the game from the stadium box. During the pre-game announcements, the Community Service Award winners are recognized by UM dignitaries on the field and appear on Griz Vision for all to see.
