(HELENA) Student Assistance Foundation (SAF), a nonprofit Montana organization, will award UM Helena College of Technology (HCT) a grant for $18,309 at an awards ceremony today, July 27, at 4 p.m. in Helena on the HCT campus. Dr. Daniel Bingham will accept the award from Garth Ferro, SAF development director.

The HCT 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 $61,405 in Acce$$ grants to HCT and over $3.3 million to Montana’s colleges and universities.

Student Assistance Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit Montana corporation that provides students with knowledge and tools to finance and pursue their post-secondary education. Funds generated by SAF are returned to Montanans in the form of education grants and public benefit programs. For more information, visit the SAF Web site at
