Thousands of eligible post-secondary students will receive a one-time COVID-19 grant of $875 to help them pay their bills.
About 11,000 students who receive Nova Scotia Student Assistance qualify. The grant, which will not have to be repaid, represents a $9.8-million investment in post-secondary students.
To be eligible for the one-time grant, post-secondary students must be a Nova Scotia resident and qualify for and receive Nova Scotia Student Assistance.
Students do not have to apply. The grant money will be automatically deposited into eligible students’ bank accounts in March.
