Pursuing Higher Education has become more expensive over the last 20 years. A full time student in the 70s could work 8-12 hours a week to pay for schooling along with their financial aid package. Today, many studies say students would need to work 60-80 hours a week to cover the equivelant costs today.
We are always looking for good financial resources for our Samish Higher Education students. If you know of one, feel free to send it to us so that we can pass it on.
Here is a great link to scholarship opportunities from the Native American Finance Officers Association which Samish is a member of. Thanks to our great Finance team for passing this along!
