Loans and bursaries programs
Student financial assistance program
The ministère de l'Éducation du Québec provides Québec students registered in a full-time program of study the possibility of obtaining financial assistance as part of its loans and bursaries program. Visit the Ministère’s website for more information.
Certain CEGEPS also offer bursaries to students from other regions who are registered in specific programs. Contact the CEGEP you wish to attend to find out if they offer bursaries and if you are eligible.
Québec Perspective scholarship program
Beginning in the Fall of 2022, the Government of Québec is offering scholarships to Québec students who are registered full time in targeted programs as a result of labour shortages in certain sectors. As such, the Québec Perspective scholarship programs aims to increase the number of students graduating from programs related to strategic sectors for the economy and essential public services.
Full-time students in the following programs leading to a Technical DCS are therefore eligible for a Québec Perspective scholarship.
