Over half of students from families with incomes of $83K or less will receive grants to cover their tuition.
Starting in the 2017–18 school year, Ontario is making college and university education more affordable and accessible with the government’s plan to prepare more students for the jobs of tomorrow. We are investing in tomorrow’s highly skilled workforce today by:
- Transforming student assistance to make average college and university tuition free for students with financial need from families with incomes of $50,000 or lower, and making tuition more affordable for middle-class families.
- Providing non-repayable grants — which will exceed average college and university tuition — to more than 50 per cent of students from families with incomes of $83,000 or less.
- Ensuring that students from families with incomes of less than $50,000 will have no provincial student debt.
- Increasing access to interest-free and low-cost loans for middle- and upper-income families.
- Expanding financial support for mature and married students.
- Ensuring all students will be the same or better off under the new Ontario Student Grant as under the Ontario Tuition Grant.
- Improving access to postsecondary education and training for First Nation, Métis and Inuit learners through continuing the Province’s three-year, $97 million investment. – more at Ontario
