University of Providence-Great Falls, Montana-Scholarship opportunity for Women's Lacrosse Team Manager


 I would like to take this opportunity to introduce the University of Providence (Formerly the University of Great Falls) lacrosse program. We are looking women who would like to earn a scholarship for being a team manager for our lacrosse program. Knowledge of Lacrosse in not necessary but you should definitely like athletics. Duties would include score-keeping, filming, statistics, attending practice, managing equipment and uniforms etc. We are offering scholarships of $12,000 (approximately 50% of tuition cost) for a handful of students that want an excellent education and the opportunity to be part of a varsity program. The University of Providence is going through some exciting changes with the first being the name change. The name will more closely reflect the founding of the school by the Sisters of Providence and the school’s relationship with Providence Saint Joseph Health. This will also bring the addition of additional majors, athletic programs and a growth in the student population to around 1,400 students. We are an NAIA (National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics) school. Typically, NAIA schools have student body populations that are under a few thousand; UProv is no different with approximately 800 undergrads this year. This means that every class is a personalized experience: our student to faculty ratio is near 12:1. We are a private Catholic school but not all of our students are practicing Catholics. However, the majority of our students place a value on a liberal arts education in the Catholic tradition. If you would like to learn more about our school, please visit uprovidence.edu. Our lacrosse team is competing in the MCLA while the NAIA progresses through the initial founding of lacrosse as a sanctioned sport. We are in the Pacific Northwest Collegiate Lacrosse League, competing against teams in Oregon, Washington, Montana and Idaho. We made great strides in the 2017 season finishing 10-4 and ranked #20 in the MCLA national coach’s poll. To view our schedule, and learn more information about the UProv lacrosse team, please visit UPArgos.com. Our program is looking for quality young men or women who have a strong love for lacrosse and a desire to be part of a varsity team. We also want candidates who want to succeed academically and who enjoy the recreational activities that Montana has to offer: hunting, fishing, skiing, hiking, camping, rafting, etc. If this sounds like a place you would consider for your education along with the opportunity to be part of a varsity lacrosse team, please contact one of the coaches below for more detailed information. Thank you,
