SCC Financial Aid

The College maintains a program of financial assistance for students whose family resources are not sufficient to meet costs of securing a college education. The Financial Aid department will assist the student in applying for financial aid, if necessary.

The Financial Aid Office is dedicated to support the goals and purposes of the College. These goals are:
• to assist with tribal development,
• to assist with Chippewa Cree Cultural Development,
• to develop students academically,
• to promote Indian resident self-development.

PELL Grants

The Federal PELL Grant Program is a federally-funded student financial aid program designed to assist students in the continuation of their education and training. The purpose of the Federal PELL Grant Program is to provide eligible students with a base of financial aid to help defray the costs of post-secondary education.

A student can apply online at www.fasfa.ed.gov. Student eligibility is based primarily on financial need which is determined by a formula applied consistently to all applicants. It is to be used solely for educational purposes, which include tuition, fees, room and board, books, supplies and miscellaneous expenses.

FSEOG and Federal Work Study

Federal Work Study (FWS) and Federal Supplemental Education Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) eligibility criteria are as
follows:
1. Student must be Federal PELL Eligible.
2. Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) is calculated with students having the lowest EFC given top priority.
3. The student's unmet need is calculated with the highest unmet need given top priority.

Tribal Scholarship and Training Grants

Stone Child College currently administers the Tribal Higher Education Scholarships and Adult Vocational Training Programs. Eligible Indian applicants will be screened by Board of Regents and awarded grants as funding allows.

Native American students interested in applying for this form of financial aid should have their financial aid and ACT scores submitted before the deadline and have completed BIA applications submitted. The application process must be completed the spring before the school year for which they wish to attend. Limited funding is available, making
timely, neat and complete applications necessary.
