THE WADE CHRISTIANSEN PURPLE HEART SCHOLARSHIP FUND
A MEMORIAL RESOURCE TO SUPPORT THOSE WHO SUPPORT US ALL
The Wade Christiansen Purple Heart Scholarship Fund has two purposes: to preserve the memory of late Army Paratrooper Specialist Wade Christiansen, and to support military service members with a critical resource in their transition to civilian life: a quality education.
The Wade Christiansen Purple Heart Scholarship Fund is administered by Montana State University, with fundraising assistance from the Christiansen family and support from community donors. The fund will award a scholarship to a continuing Montana State student with military service, or to a student family member of a veteran, on an annual basis. With adequate fundraising, the fund will make its first award in fall 2016, with the expectation of expansion where funds allow.
