NS announces one-time $16.2M fund to help students cover costs of textbooks, bills


The Government of Nova Scotia is spending $16.2M to help postsecondary students pay for educational resources, including textbooks, and other school-related bills. A one-time, needs-based grant of $1,350 will be credited to almost 12,000 postsecondary students across the province. “I know from talking to students that affordability is a key issue for them,” said NS Minister of Advanced Education Brian Wong. “I have [also] heard from students that the cost of books can be a real challenge, and I’m proud to take action on solutions that will make a real difference.”
