The Tribal Council is committed to providing an opportunity for enrolled tribal members to pursue higher education including vocational training. Tribal Higher Education scholarships are available to students to pursue their chosen course of study. The application process typically closes in early May for the upcoming academic year. All students who receive funding from the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes are subject to the provisions contained in the Student Policy Handbook. Every effort will be made to be fair and equitable given our available resources. The handbook and application are available online here beginning in late January or the start of February each year. Funding is available for both undergraduate and graduate level students, as well as certain vocational programs through accredited institutions.

The Higher Education Scholarship Officer, Miranda Burland, is available to assist students in completing Higher Education, Vocational Training and Pell Grant (FAFSA) applications, providing information on financial aid resources, assisting students in choosing a school or career field and helping them with concerns encountered while attending school. Reach out by phone at (406)675-2700 ext. 1074 or email at
