The Government of Canada and the Government of New Brunswick work together to help you access and pay for post-secondary education. With one application each year of your program, you will be considered for student financial assistance, which may include loans, grants, and bursaries from both levels of government. A separate application is required if you are applying for the Canada Student Grant for Services and Equipment for students with disabilities.
The process of applying is different for full-time and part-time students. Your school (public or private) can be anywhere in the world if it’s been approved.
The New Brunswick Student Financial Assistance Program offers funding for school through two kinds of money:
- Student loans – money you have to repay
- Grants and bursaries – money you don't have to pay back
Funding is available for both full-time and part-time students and is based on a number of factors, including your family income.
The student financial assistance program can help you pay for:
- tuition and other mandatory fees;
- books and supplies (when applicable);
- return transportation;
- childcare (if applicable);
- living allowance (full-time students only);
- incidental allowance (part-time students only); and,
- computer-related costs (full-time students only).
Assistance is available to full-time and part-time post-secondary education students who meet the eligibility requirements.
