MUN is planning to clear tuition fees for former foster children who enrol at the university. (Marie-Isabelle Rochon/Radio Canada )

Memorial University in Newfoundland and Labrador will offer free undergraduate tuition to 20 students formerly in foster care, beginning this spring.

The school made the announcement Thursday, saying it was following in the footsteps of Mount Saint Vincent University, in Nova Scotia.

Memorial said in a news release it will provide full-time undergraduate tuition for a maximum of four years, and up to eight semesters, for 20 students.

Eligible students need to have lived in foster care for at least one year.

Mount Saint Vincent announced a similar program earlier this month, and in October Western University in Ontario announced it would provide assistance to up to 35 students who had "aged-out" of the child protection system.

The universities say the programs are aimed at making education more accessible to youth from diverse backgrounds.

IGA Bursary

As in previous years, the deadline for high school students to apply for an IGA Bursary is February 28th.

The process, however, is much different than it has been in the past.

Students now have to apply for an IGA Bursary (through the IGA website) on-line, as is the case for most post-secondary applications, student loans, and the like.

We’re confident this process will prove to be more efficient for both the student and for the IGA in the long run.

The link for them to apply is as follows:

 

http://www.grenfellassociation.org/bursaries/bursary-guidelines/

 

Students need to click on “Online Bursary Application Page”, where they will have to create an account and then proceed to apply for the Bursary.

You will notice that we have also posted a tutorial to help guide them – and perhaps you - through this process just below the “Online Bursary Application Page” link, where it says “here”.

Reviewing the 6 minute video should make things a lot easier from the student’s and principal’s perspective.

Principals are still asked to provide letters of reference, but this is now all done through the on-line process.

We will no longer have the two regional offices involved in compiling and forwarding applications to be sent to the IGA, as students will henceforth apply directly to the IGA using the on-line process, prior to or on February 28th.

Fisheries Scholarship

The purpose of the scholarship is to assist students entering post-secondary institutions while creating awareness on the province's fishing, sealing and aquaculture industries among our young people. The scholarship will be valued at $1,000.

Information and an application form are available at http://www.fishaq.gov.nl.ca/education/DFA%20scholarship%20application%202014-15.pdf PDF

Get Canadian scholarships and chase your dream

 

Whether you’re still thinking about which trade school to apply for, or are entering your 3rd year as an undergrad student, the reality of how much everything will cost can be crushing. While costs have risen, investing in your education should be a top priority. Fortunately, there are lots of scholarships and bursaries designed to help you - if you know where to look.

Apply for scholarships

If you do a quick search on the internet, you can find tens of thousands of scholarships being offered in Canada. Do yourself a favour and apply for as many as possible, including the TD Scholarship for Community Leadership. Scholarships are awarded based on your achievements, income, community work and more. Make sure to find out exactly what is required when you apply. It will take more time to apply for a scholarship than a loan, but the extra work could pay off because a scholarship doesn’t need to be paid back.

Check with the financial aid office of your chosen university or college, or use these useful links to explore some of the programs available in Canada:

As the future of the school year is uncertain, I would like to inform you of some wonderful options to access counselling online, in the comfort of your own home and at a time convenient for you.

 

 

 

 At a webinar today hosted by the Department of Health & Community Services, we were given a thorough breakdown of several forms of E-Mental Health offered by our province. I will provide a brief overview of each for you.

 

  

 

 1) Breathing Room - A self-managed program to manage stress, anxiety and depression. This is a skill building program that runs for 8 modules and typically takes about 1 to 3 hours of your time per week. It is a video based program with offline activities. If you go to the site it asks you to pay a registration fee but if you access it through the Bridge the gApp website - registration is free. You have to submit your email and create a username.

 

 

 

 2) Mindfulness Challenge - This is a weekly program for school students. It helps prepare students for exams, tests, interviews - anything that may induce stress or anxiety. Testimonials from various university/college students said this program prepared them to get through their programs by managing stress and also gave them coping mechanisms to use for life. A friend can join you to do this program together.

 

   

 

3) TAO - Therapy Assistance Online - This is a self-guided program whereby you are connected with a clinician. It takes about 15 to 20 minutes per week for 4 to 6 weeks. There are several options to choose from - Cognitive Behaviour Therapy for stress and anxiety, Behavioural Action for Depression, Calming your worry for students, etc. Once again - free registration through Bridge the gApp.

 

 

 

 4) Strongest Families - offer programs for anxiety, behaviour, and bed wetting. A referral is required and I can help with that.This is also a 30 minute program once a week through the phone (at a time best for you) for 12 weeks. It is based on Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and has an 87% success rate.

 

 

 

(They've since added a program called I Can for young adults (aged 18-30) due to the success of the Strongest Families). 

 

  

 

5) Warm Line  -for non-emergency and non-crisis issues. Support is provided for various mental health issues. This is based in St. John's and they are open from 10 am to 12 am.
