New PSE policies promised by incoming Liberals in NS

October 9, 2013

The Nova Scotia Liberal Party, led by Stephen McNeil, won the provincial election Tuesday with a majority government, winning 33 of the 51 seats in the NS legislature. Higher education policy changes in the Liberals’ platform include eliminating the interest on the provincial portion of student loans, new graduate scholarships for research and innovation, and up to $120,000 in tuition relief to 25 new doctors per year for 4 years, in exchange for a 5-year commitment to practice in under-serviced communities in NS.
