New student aid grants support in-demand occupations
Training / Funding
Two new student grants - including expansion of the BC Loan Forgiveness Program to more occupations - will support education and training programs that lead to in-demand careers.
The BC Loan Forgiveness Program is being expanded to include more health and other specialized occupations. New health occupations include ultrasonography and medical laboratory technologists. Specialized occupations working with children in public facilities include audiologists and speech-language pathologists.
Other changes to the BC Loan Forgiveness Program include ensuring that recipients work a minimum of 400 hours per year at a public health facility in an underserved or designated community or school district for five years, instead of three. After five years, the outstanding B.C. portion of their student loan will be paid in full. Recipients working between 100-399 hours per year will still be eligible; however, their B.C. student loan will be forgiven by a prorated amount.
The new BC Completion Grant for Graduates program provides $500 to help students reduce their B.C. student loan after they complete programs that support in-demand occupations. Examples would be mechanical engineering or business administration. Graduates can apply for the grant starting April 1, 2015.
