DCC Establishes Fran M. Albrecht Scholarship

Dawson Community College has announced the establishment of the Fran M. Albrecht Scholarship. The scholarship was created in honor of Montana Board of Regents Chair Fran M. Albrecht, who recently completed her term.

The Fran M. Albrecht Scholarship will offer $250 per semester to a full-time, first or second-year student at Dawson Community College who demonstrates financial need. The scholarship will be administered through the Dawson College Foundation.

Albrecht was appointed to the Montana Board of Regents in September 2013 by Governor Steve Bullock. She has served as Chair for the past two years. Albrecht has built a career on serving and supporting the missions of nonprofit agencies that care for vulnerable and underserved populations. For over 17 years, she served as Executive Director for Missoula’s Watson Children’s Center, a nonprofit shelter for Montana children who have suffered abuse or experienced family crisis. Currently, she is the Chief Philanthropy Officer for Providence Montana Health Foundation, which provides support and resources for over 40 clinics and healthcare programs in Montana.

“Regent Albrecht has been a committed supporter of higher education in Montana and of Montana students. We appreciate the time and energy she has given to the Montana University System and support she’s shown for Dawson Community College. We are honored to establish this scholarship in Regent Albrecht’s name and continue her tradition of service and generosity,” said DCC President Dr. Scott R. Mickelsen.
