Access & Success

Help us create financial opportunities for our students to further their education with scholarship funds

What is Access & Success?


A primary barrier facing SKC students in reaching their goals of higher education is funding. Even with a reasonable fee structure and reduced tuition rates for Native American students, our students bring a high unmet need in order to complete even one year of college. SKC Advancement is proud to be the primary source of private scholarship funding for our students and has been for over 30 years. The SKC Advancement scholarship program is a critical source of access for our students and presents an ongoing opportunity for growth.

Once students gain access and realize college success, SKC Advancement serves as a bridge of connection. In expanding our reach and celebrating those who have successfully completed degrees, we are creating a robust new alumni association with exciting opportunities for social connection, professional networking, and integration with current SKC people and programs. This effort will facilitate communication among alumni and the SKC community, celebrate alumni achievements, cultivate donor relationships, and even provide mentorship opportunities between alumni and current students.
