NS provides one-time grant to students who took out loans in 2020

December 9, 2020
The Government of Nova Scotia has announced that it will be providing a one-time grant of $750 to 13,000 college and university students who took out loans this school year. “It’s very, very good news,” said NS Minister of Advanced Education Lena Metlege Diab. “It could go for groceries, it could go for personal items. You know, $750 that you don't expect in the month of January, I’d say that’s very good news.” The grant will be deposited directly into students’ bank accounts. Students Nova Scotia has applauded the effort, although Executive Director Clancy McDaniel added that students would like to see the costs and barriers they are facing further addressed.
