Students in their fifth year of study who are in a co-op program are now eligible for the 30% off tuition grant that the Liberal government of Ontario brought into effect in 2012. This was announced January 16th at the University of Waterloo. Kitchener Centre MPP John Milloy and Brad Duguid, the Minister of Training, Colleges and Universities made the announcement on Monday.

Student groups in Waterloo and in other regions were credited by Duguid for advocating the extension of the grant to fifth-year co-op students. Last year, 230,000 students took advantage of the grant first brought into place in 2012. This extension of the grant will help about 5,000 co-op students, many of them at the University of Waterloo. This change will help make university more affordable for post-secondary students. The grant will provide students with a tuition rebate up to $1730.
