Scholarships are available for students attending North Idaho College.

Paying tuition and fees at North Idaho College? There’s help available.

That’s the message that administrators at NIC are trying to emphasize to students as the number of people who are turning to training and education at NIC as well as the cost of education continue to rise.

“Many students don’t apply for scholarships because they believe that they need to have a high GPA or be low income in order to be eligible, but that is just not true,” said Vice President for Student Services Sheldon Nord. “There are scholarships for first-generation students, nursing students, students from certain counties—the bottom line is there is money available to help you.”

The priority deadline for filing a scholarship application for fall semester 2011 at North Idaho College is March 14. But applications will be accepted even after that deadline.

The NIC Foundation distributed a record-breaking $500,000 in scholarships to more than 620 students in the 2009-2010 academic year. Recipients were traditional credit students as well as noncredit students taking classes at the Workforce Training Center and even dual credit high school students.

“We want to be able to put more scholarships in the hands of deserving students,” said NIC Foundation Executive Director Rayelle Anderson.

Current and new students may download an application at www.nic.edu/scholarships.
