ON expands Learn and Stay Grant program


The Government of Ontario has expanded the Learn and Stay Grant program, which offers a tuition-free education in health care to students who agree to work for two years in a region with need for health care workers. The grant has been expanded to 2,500 students and in addition to nursing, now includes paramedic and medical lab technician students. The program is intended to address the need for healthcare workers in key communities, and provides the full funding required to cover tuition, books, and other educational costs. Students who receive the grant will be required to complete two years of work in the region in which they studied.
