‘Cash for College’ offers help for students starting fall programs

Posted on Tuesday May 9, 2017

On May 8, Cambrian College launched a new program that will reduce financial barriers for eligible students who are starting fall semester programs. The Cash for College program will offer 196 students a $500 credit to offset the cost of their education.

“At Cambrian, we are always looking for ways to help our current and future students to overcome financial barriers that may prevent them from accessing postsecondary education,” said Renée Scott, Director of Student Success and Recruitment. “Our new Cash for College program will help eligible students who apply for the $500 fee credit by July 21. All they need to do is answer a short questionnaire to show financial need. If they qualify, the credit will be applied to their student account in time to offset fees that are due at the beginning of the school year,” Scott continued.

Cambrian College set aside $98,000 to make this program possible for students who start fall programs in 2017. The investment in the Cash for College program is closely aligned with Cambrian’s Strategic Plan objectives, which include enhancing access to postsecondary education.
