Students eligible for $12,000 grants for every 6 months they work in an area of need

by

Manitoba medical students will have the option to have their tuition fully paid for if they agree to work in areas-in-need. Premier Greg Selinger announced Thursday that students will receive a $12,000 grant each year of their degree that they agree to work in a high need area. Students will be eligible for an additional $25,000 grant if they agree to an extra year of service. The policy is aimed at retaining doctor’s in rural areas and Winnipeg’s inner city.
