Scholarships & Financial Aid


SKC Nursing Department offers multiple scholarship and grant opportunities to support prospective and enrolled nursing students.


Financial Aid

Financial aid is financial assistance provided to eligible students through the Office of Student Financial Aid in the form of grants, loans, part-time work, and scholarships to help pay the cost of attending college. Financial aid is routed through federal, state, and local agencies and programs.

These may include scholarships, Federal Pell Grants, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (FSEOG), Montana Higher Education Grant (MHEG), Montana Tuition Assistance Program (MTAP), Federal Work-Study Program (FWS), and Federal Stafford Loans. Aid eligibility is determined by a formula established by the Department of Education and an analysis of the family’s financial information and demonstrated need.

Additionally, students must be seeking a degree or certificate to obtain financial aid. Financial Aid Applications can be obtained from the Financial Aid Office at Salish Kootenai College in the Robert DePoe III building, Room #108.

Please contact Jackie Swain, in the Financial Aid Office, (406) 275- 4859 or for current list of available scholarships and grants.

Detailed information about our program is provided in the SKC catalog.
