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:
- Higher Education Assistance Awards (after high school): Financial Support is available to Samish Tribal Members after High School. Please contact the Education Program directly for the current forms & applications. As of August 2018, we have a waitlist for undergraduate funding for the 2018-19 Academic year. Any completed applications received will be added to the waitlist in the order they are received completed in case funding becomes available.
- 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.
