FVCC Receives U.S. Department of Education Grant for Student Support Services

Flathead Valley Community College’s TRIO Student Support Services program has been funded by the U.S. Department of Education for a five-year period beginning Sept. 1, 2020. The $1.92 million grant award supports comprehensive academic support to selected first-generation, low-income college students and/or students with disabilities.

FVCC’s TRIO program serves approximately 350 degree-seeking students annually with a variety of services, including tutoring, mentoring, personal and academic career counseling, financial literacy training and more.

“I am proud of the outstanding TRIO program that our student support team has created,” FVCC Vice President of Academic and Student Affairs Chris Clouse said. “It directly impacts the lives of so many deserving students. TRIO provides students with information, training and coaching to navigate the college landscape and chart a path to personal and academic success.”
