Canada Student Grants for Part-Time Studies
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.
Note: This grant is not available to students from the Northwest Territories, Nunavut and Quebec as these provinces and territories operate their own student financial assistance programs.
You are eligible if:
- 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; and
- you and your spouse or common-law partner have a low family income as defined by the Canada Student Loans Program.
Note: As of August 1, 2018, eligibility for part-time grants and loans will be expanded.
