Financial Support

Although “Education is a Right” through our treaties, there are limits to the amounts of financial assistance that you will receive when you are a post secondary student. The financial “assistance” – it is in no way meant to provide full coverage of your expenses while you are a student. It is very important that you start saving now to help offset the expenses that you will incur over and above the limited of financial assistance you will receive from the Matawa Post Secondary Program. To view who is eligible, requirements, and application information, download the Post Secondary Student guide. Questions? Please email  Georgette O’Nabigon, Post Secondary Program Coordinator.     There is post secondary education subsidized assistance for tuition, books, tutoring and education assistance for full-time eligible students. Download the Post Secondary Student Guide for more information.
