The Braget Family Scholarship for Healthcare

The Braget Family Scholarship for Healthcare was created in honor of Rachael, Danielle and Michelle Braget and the excellent education they received from the Great Falls Public School system. The Braget Family Scholarship hopes to improve access to higher education for the next generation of community leaders.

After spending the last 20 years in Montana, the Braget family has rooted themselves in the community. Daren Braget is a physician in the Great Falls community. Patty Braget was a pre-school teacher and continues to pursue philanthropic opportunities supporting the community. Their daughters Danielle and Michelle have pursued careers in medicine and Rachael has pursued a career in social work. Their K-12 education obtained in Great Falls provided a strong foundation for their future successes in higher education and in their careers.

The Braget Family Scholarship for Healthcare will be awarded annually to a motivated student who plans to pursue a post-secondary education at an accredited institution in the healthcare field.
