NBSA calls for “sliding scale” on NB Tuition Access Bursary

November 8, 2016

The New Brunswick Student Alliance is calling on the NB government to institute “comprehensive PSE reforms” that include the introduction of a sliding scale for the province’s Tuition Access Bursary. “We have said before that the TAB was a solid first step,” says NBSA Executive Director Robert Burroughs, “but that improvements are needed. We believe that the introduction of a sliding scale would be the kind of sound, progressive economic policy that this province needs.” The document also recommends that the government make changes to the province’s Timely Completion Benefit while making new investments in mental health, international student health care, experiential learning, and the implementation of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action to increase postsecondary access for Indigenous students.
