According to the Children’s Aid Society of Nipissing Parry Sound, youth placed in foster care are less likely to pursue postsecondary education. To help reduce barriers in accessing postsecondary education, Nipissing University launched the Youth in Care Waiver program.
The program offers eligible students, including mature learners, the opportunity to apply for a waiver that covers both tuition and ancillary fees. By helping remove financial barriers to attending university, students and learners will gain equitable access to a university education that can help launch their careers.
