SKC gave out $840,925 to 516 different students as of 9/30/22.
Salish Kootenai College established an application system for students requesting Emergency Financial Aid Grants. Students complete applications via a web application. The applications are reviewed by an anonymous multi-departmental committee including personnel from SKC's Financial Aid Department, Business Office and Academic Success. Once a student's application has been accepted and their status verified, they are notified via email that they have received an Emergency Financial Aid Grant and how to get access to the money.
Students were notified of the applications process via our Emergency Notification System which sends emails and texts to all students. In addition, on our student COVID-19 website there is information on how to apply.
