Making the dream more affordable for students

Funding education will be a little easier for 18 Montana students thanks to the Northwest Farm Credit Services 2016 scholarship program, including one Riley Slivka from Central Montana.

Slivka, a recent graduate of Winifred High School, is the son of Shane and Erin Slivka and will be attending Northwest College in the fall.

In total, in 2016 Northwest Farm Credit Services awarded scholarships to 82 students from throughout its five-state territory (Alaska, Idaho, Mont., Ore., Wash.) and Calif. for a total of $164,000 as part of its commitment to educate, support and inspire today’s youth. Through an application process, the company awards $2,000 scholarships annually to high school seniors, current college students and students pursuing graduate degrees.
