From Pre-K to post-secondary, our government is committed to supporting families in planning every stage of their child’s education. The Saskatchewan Advantage Grant for Education Savings, The Saskatchewan Advantage Scholarship and The Graduate Retention Program are among the many ways we are working to make post-secondary accessible and affordable.
To make life easier for those pursuing post-secondary, we have streamlined administration of the student loans program. The One-time Signature for Student Loan Consents and Canada Revenue Agency Release replaces the requirement for students to sign designated consents, authorizations and agreement forms when applying for financial assistance each year. This includes one-time sig-natures for parents/guardians/sponsors/spouses using designated forms, unless there is a break in student financial assistance for a period of two or more years.Read More...
