Learning for Future Grant

The Learning for Future Grant provides an annual grant of $3,500 per program year (August 1 to July 31) to students who meet the eligibility criteria for the Provincial Tuition Waiver Program, to assist with additional education related costs that are not covered by the Provincial Tuition Waiver Program (e.g. textbooks, computers, and supplies). For more information, please visit the Learning for Future Grant page on the StudentAid BC website.
