July 27, 2020
Loyalist College has announced that current and former youth in extended care of a Children’s Aid Society are eligible to apply for a financial assistance waiver which covers the cost of tuition. “Many youths face ongoing hardships after care,” explained Jane Kovarikova, Founder of Child Welfare PAC and former foster child. “Tuition waivers without age limits level the playing field for this group long-term.” Loyalist President Ann Marie Vaughan added: “we want these amazing individuals to know we care and we are here to help them advance, regardless of their age or stage in life.” Loyalist (ON)
