Thanks from SVEDC Dual Credit Scholarship awardees

The Silver Valley Economic Development Corp - North Idaho College Dual Credit Scholarship was established in 2005 to provide financial assistance to high school students in Shoshone County.

Because dual credit students are not eligible to apply for Federal Financial Aid, the scholarship was established to support Silver Valley students with their education. Without this financial assistance, many of these students would not be able to enroll in dual credit courses.  

The Silver Valley community stepped up and helped purchase books, pay lab fees and tuition.  Here are some of the thank you notes from students who received assistance: 


  • This scholarship will help me by allowing me to get a head start on my Chemistry degree. Thank you very much for the opportunity to receive this scholarship!  It means a lot to receive the extra help in pursuing my goals.
  • Thank you so much!  I would never have had the opportunity to take this class if it wasn't for this scholarship.  I am so grateful! 
  • This helps me get a head start and pay less. Thank you greatly! This scholarship is truly a blessing.
  • This scholarship means a lot to me because my dad just got a new job and it doesn't pay as much as his last job.  Without this scholarship I may have had to drop the class.
