Laurentian approves tuition exemption for youth in extended society care

August 14, 2019

Laurentian University has announced that youth in extended society (Crown Wards) care will again be eligible to apply for a full tuition exemption for courses at the university. The program will be open to current and former youth in the care of the Children’s Aid Society who are pursuing their first post-secondary degree. “These students, many of whom are Indigenous, face unique challenges in accessing post-secondary education,” said Laurentian interim Vice-President, Academic and Provost Serge Demers. “It is important that we remove barriers and enable them to achieve their academic goals. We are proud to continue supporting this group of students and we will look towards fundraising within our community to expand the program’s reach in future years.” Laurentian (ON)
