Fort Peck Comm. Coll. to be Awarded $9,770 for Student Grants

(HELENA) Student Assistance Foundation (SAF), a nonprofit Montana organization, will award Fort Peck Community College (FPCC) a grant for $9,770 at an awards ceremony on Wednesday, May 17, in Poplar. The ceremony will take place at 11:00 a.m. in the Greet the Dawn Auditorium on the Poplar campus. President James Shanley will accept the award from Jessie Dufner, an SAF representative.

The FPCC 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 $18,935 in Acce$$ grants to FPCC and over $3.3 million to Montana’s colleges and universities.
