Montana Coffee Traders has been roasting coffee in a vintage farmhouse just south of Whitefish since 1981. With a current team of over 115 people across four Flathead Valley locations, MCT strives to be a positive part of people’s everyday lives. As the company continues to grow and evolve, they work constantly to deepen roots in the local community and further develop a connection to coffee farmers around the world.
The Montana Coffee Traders Scholarship Fund was established at the Whitefish Community Foundation in 2020. This year, two scholarships will be awarded to college-bound students. One, $1000 scholarship will be awarded to an eligible MCT employee or to a child or legal dependent of a current employee. The second $1000 scholarship will be awarded to an eligible Flathead Valley resident. The Montana Coffee Traders Scholarship will begin accepting applications on March 1, 2020 and will close April 15, 2020. Successful high school candidates will accept this scholarship at their high school award ceremony.
