Canada Student Grant for Students from Low-Income Families
The Canada Student Grant for Students from Low-Income Families is available to low-income students while enrolled in a full-time undergraduate program at a designated post-secondary institution.
Note: This Grant is not available to students from the Northwest Territories, Nunavut and Quebec as these provinces and territories operate their own student financial assistance programs.
You are eligible if you:
- apply and qualify for student financial assistance (have at least a $1 of assessed financial need);
- are from a low-income family as defined by the Canada Student Loans Program; and
- are enrolled in a full-time and undergraduate degree, diploma, or certificate program that is at least 2 years (60 weeks) in duration at a designated post-secondary institution.
