Mount Saint Vincent University is launching a tuition waiver program for people who have previously been in foster care. The program will cover all tuition and fees for eligible students of all ages. The program will start as a pilot in January 2021, with a full launch planned for September 2021. “At MSVU, we embrace the diversity of our community and are committed to efforts that advance equity, inclusion and accessibility across all facets of our university and beyond,” said MSVU President Mary Bluechardt. “MSVU was founded more than a century ago based on a commitment to removing barriers to education and this commitment still runs deep.” MSVU reports that it is the first university in Atlantic Canada to launch this kind of program.
