Canada Student Grants are available to students from most provinces and territories except those from the Northwest Territories, Nunavut and Quebec. These governments have their own student financial assistance programs. If you qualify for a Canada Student Loan, you are automatically assessed for most Canada Student Grants, with the exception of the Grant for Services and Equipment for Students with Permanent Disabilities, which requires a separate application. You may be eligible to receive more than one grant.
The Canada Student Grant for Part-Time Studies is available to low-income students enrolled in a part-time program at a designated post-secondary institution.
- You are enrolled in a part-time degree, diploma, or certificate program (at least 12 weeks long within a period of 15 weeks in a row) at a designated post-secondary institution
- You apply and qualify for part-time student financial assistance
- You have successfully completed all courses for which you previously received a grant
- You and your spouse or common-law partner have a low family income as defined by the Canada Student Loans Program
Deadline: Your eligibility for this Canada Student Grant is assessed automatically when you apply and qualify for student financial assistance through your province or territory of residence.
