What is Manitoba Student Aid? Do I qualify?
We break it down for you: Who we are, what we do, what we can do for you and what it takes to be eligible for our program.

Our program provides loans, grants and bursaries to Manitobans who need help paying for school.

Student loans are calculated based on your financial need and are meant to supplement, not replace, your own resources. Just because you apply for a student loan does not mean you'll get one, and just because you get one does not mean you will get the maximum amount.

If you do get a student loan, you don't have to make payments or pay interest on it while you are a full-time student.
