The last number of summers, some Canadian staff who were in school the previous year and returned to full time studies in the fall – received a government grant that paid $2,300 per month. The grant is not guaranteed every year. This year the grant is available to all Canadian citizens who are between the ages of 18-30 regardless of whether they are going back to school or not.
Those who are returning staff will be higher on the list to receive the grant if we get it.
