The Montgomery scholarship was established by James Montgomery, a former professor of Spanish and retired university librarian from Austin, Texas. Its purpose is to encourage understanding of and appreciation for the history, culture, and environment of the Southern Blue Ridge Mountains region.
Scholarship recipients must maintain a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher, while actively engaged in the study of the region through the Liston B. Ramsey Center for Regional Studies at Mars Hill College.
