Graduation Matters Bozeman has received a $5,000 grant to help increase the number of students who complete college applications.

The grant is one of 12 totaling $50,000 awarded by the Montana Office of Public Instruction and the Student Assistance Foundation.

In a written statement, Graduation Matters said it plans to use the money to increase the number of students who fill out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid and to increase the number of students filling out applications for college and for certificate and two-year-degrees.

It will also use the grant to participate in November’s College Application Week, an effort to increase the number of Montana students who apply for college.
