The mission of the education program is to promote educational programs that foster the preservation of Samish culture and traditions and instill a desire for lifelong learning in all Samish tribal members.

We do this by providing the following services for enrolled tribal members:

  • Tutoring Support: Financial Assistance is available, for tutoring services, for K-12 students completing a GED/HS Diploma.  Please contact the Education Program directly for the current forms & applications.
  • Course Completion Incentive Program: Samish Tribal Members are eligible, once per quarter, for a $100 award for completing a post-secondary school course. Please Login and follow the link to the online application for Course Completion Incentives

For all 3 programs, Tribal members should login to the website for additional information and Course Completion Online Application
