March 29, 2010 § Leave a comment
A news release came out today on the Government of Ontario website stating Premier Dalton McGuinty‘s government’s official commitment to providing greater financial assistance to post-secondary students. Some of the modifications to the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) include:
- Allowing students to keep more of the money they earn from part-time jobs
- Providing a no-interest period on student loans for six months after graduation
- Introducing 1,000 new graduate scholarships
Neil Adams from 570 News was on-campus this afternoon, speaking with students at the University of Waterloo about these recent changes to OSAP.
Now, what would I do with more money?
Eat more salad, of course.
