Eligible students are now receiving by mail B.C. Access Grant and other grant cheques from the “Province of British Columbia General Account.”
Building on the elimination of interest on B.C. student loans, beginning on August 1, 2020, a new needs-based, up-front B.C. Access Grant will remove barriers to post-secondary education and training and provide non-repayable financial support for students at B.C. public post-secondary institutions.
Applications for the 2019/2020 Program Year for classes starting between August 1, 2019 and July 31, 2020 are now available.
