Pathways to College

The goal of the Education Department is to assist students in achieving their academic or career goals.  We offer a variety of programs for all levels of learners.  In this article we are providing free resources for financial assistance to support students through their college years.  The first step in the process is to submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) that is available at:   https://fafsa.ed.gov/ .

The Fallon Paiute Shoshone Tribe has financial assistance available for tribal members.  The next deadline is June 1, 2016 for the Fall 2016 semester.  A Higher Education, Adult Vocational Training, or Enrichment Scholarship application can be downloaded from the Education Department’s website at: http://www.fpst.org/departments/cultural-affairs/education/.   Please contact Lynette Fisherman for additional information regarding the Higher Education process.
