FBC to be Awarded Over $4,000 for Student Grants

(HELENA) Student Assistance Foundation (SAF), a nonprofit Montana organization,
will award Fort Belknap College (FBC) a grant for $4,229 at an awards ceremony
on Monday, July 17, in Harlem. The ceremony will take place at 1:00 p.m. in the
White Clay People Hall conference room on the FBC campus. President Carole
Falcon-Chandler and Dean of Students Clarena Brockie will be present to accept
the award from Libby Siebens, SAF community outreach manager.

The FBC award is part of a $1.1 million Acce$$ grant package provided by SAF to
Montana’s colleges and universities this year. Acce$$ (pronounced “access”)
grants are awarded each year by SAF to Montana’s post-secondary financial aid
offices. Financial aid officers use the grants to help students with unmet
financial needs continue their education. Award amounts vary by individual need
and are determined by the financial aid offices. The funds are educational
grants and are gifted to students. They do not require repayment.

Since its inception in 1999, SAF has awarded $6,727 in Acce$$ grants to FBC and
over $3.3 million to Montana’s colleges and universities.
