Columbia Bank has contributed $2,500 to the North Idaho College Foundation to provide financial assistance to high school students in Shoshone County who are taking dual credit courses. The money is being directed toward the Silver Valley Economic Development Corp. - North Idaho College Dual Credit Scholarship. Dual credit provides high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to enroll in NIC classes for both high school and college credit. Because dual credit students are not eligible to apply for Federal Financial Aid, this scholarship helps support Silver Valley students in their pursuit of higher education.

Silver Valley high school students are encouraged to apply for scholarship support via the NIC Foundation Scholarship application found at To make a donation to the Silver Valley Economic Development Corporation - NIC Dual Credit Scholarship, go to
