Canada Student Grants for Part-Time Students

This grant is available to low and middle-income students who are in school part time. If you are going to school full-time, see grant for full-time students.

Note: This grant is not available to students from the Northwest Territories, Nunavut and Quebec. They have their own student aid programs.


You could be eligible for this grant if you apply and:

  • are a part-time student in financial need
  • are a part-time student in a qualified program at a designated school
  • have successfully completed the courses you have been given a grant for in the past; and
  • your total family income is less than the income threshold below

Family size (number of people) For maximum grant
(if gross family income is below the amount for family size, the student qualifies for the maximum grant)

How much you could receive

For the 2020 to 2021 school year, you could receive up to $3,600. However, the amount of the grant will not be more than your assessed need. For example, if you have an assessed need of $1,200, you will receive a $1,200 grant. The school year runs from August 1 of the current year to July 31 of the next year.


When you apply for student aid through your province or territory, you are also assessed for a Canada Student Grant.
