Student Loans – It’s not just a loan!
Students who apply are automatically considered for 3 forms of financial assistance. In addition to student loans, Saskatchewan’s Student Financial Assistance program offers a range of non-repayable grants and bursaries for learners. There’s money for school that students won’t need to pay back-ever. Last year 65% of all provincial assistance provided to learners was non-repayable.
