The Province has announced a one-time grant aimed at helping post-secondary students with the rising cost of living.
It says about 11,000 students who get Nova Scotia student assistance in the 2022-23 academic year will get a one-time payment of $550.
To be eligible, post-secondary students have to be Nova Scotia residents, qualify for and get Nova Scotia student assistance during the current academic year and attend university, Nova Scotia Community College or a private career college.
The government says students don’t have to apply for the grant.
It says the money will be deposited automatically into the bank accounts of most eligible students in January.
