Jake Etchart Memorial Scholarship

Jake Etchart- grew up spending summers at Fort Peck Lake, with much of his time spent around the Fort Peck Theatre where his family was actively involved as volunteers. He loved watching his sisters, Alexa and Christen, perform on the Fort Peck stage.

Jake's family and friends established a theatre scholarship fund in his memory which is invested within the Fort Peck Theatre Preservation Endowment of the Montana Community Foundation. The interest from this investment provides up to two scholarships per year for undergraduate or graduate students pursuing a career in the Fine Arts. To be eligible, applicants must have a history of volunteering, or participating in some program sponsored by the Fort Peck Fine Arts Council, and they must be at least a full time undergraduate at an accredited university with at least a 2.50 GPA. Priority will be given to undergraduate applicants. Visit our website for complete instructions and an application.

Applications must be postmarked by July 15th and mailed to the Fort Peck Fine Arts Council at PO Box 973, Glasgow, MT 59230. Questions may be directed to 406.228.9216 or via email:

Jake's family and the Fine Arts Council would like to thank the donors who have made this scholarship possible.

Scholarships will be awarded at the Fort Peck Summer Theatre's Performing Arts Camp Showcase the second week of August.
