I Want to Help: Canada Student Service Grant

Do you want to volunteer this summer? You could be eligible for a new grant. In response to COVID-19, the Government of Canada has created I Want to Help, an initiative that will provide thousands of qualified post-secondary students with learning and volunteer opportunities to address relevant COVID-19 challenges at Canadian not-for-profits during summer 2020. Students participating will be eligible to apply for the Canada Student Service Grant - a cash award to be used towards post-secondary education.

To be considered an eligible student for the program, a person must:

  • Be enrolled and attending post-secondary education (PSE) during spring/summer 2020 and/or September 2020; or
  • Have graduated from PSE no earlier than December 2019; and
  • Be a Canadian citizen, permanent resident, or have refugee status.

An information session was held on Wednesday, June 10 to learn more about the Canada Student Service Grant and how you can get involved. Watch a recording of the information session here.
