StudentAid BC

Helps eligible students with the costs of post secondary education through loans, grants, bursaries, scholarship and special programs.

It also has programs for borrowers who need help repaying loans.

Most StudentAid BC programs are based on need, providing financial assistance where students and their immediate families do not have the resources to meet the costs of post-secondary education and basic living expenses.

StudentAid BC also offers scholarships based on merit.

StudentAid BC administers programs on behalf of the Government of Canada including Canada student loans, Canada study grants, Canada access grants and the Canada Millennium Scholarship Foundation bursary.

Applications available through the website, from any local college or university or from a local Service BC Government Agents office (see separate listings).

Information about the Canadian government portion of students loans available from the National Student Loans Service Centre website:
