Please select the options that apply.* Select All Support for Post-Secondary Students Housing Assistance and Self-Isolation Supports Childcare Support Support for Post-Secondary StudentsThe COVID-19 pandemic has altered the lives of post-secondary students. As a result, most students are having to take their classes online while managing family life. In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic has increased mental and financial stress, therefore MN–S is offering the following supports to help Métis students during this challenging time: Technology - this is to help you attain basic technology for your online learning from home. The approved technology may include a laptop, printer, iPad, internet booster etc. or any means of technology that will help with your studies. Rent - having a roof over our heads is one of the basic necessities. This subsidy will help you and your family maintain a home while you are continuing your post-secondary studies. Utilities - maintaining utility bills is something many post-secondary students struggle with regularly, and even more so during the pandemic. Utility subsidies will help to alleviate stress related to paying your utility bills; allowing you more time to focus on your family and your studies versus managing finances.
