Lethbridge College is offering financial support to students who are in need and coming in as refugees. The Humanitarian Program will provide domestic tuition rates for up to 10 international students while two of those ten will receive free tuition and textbooks. Chiye Kinjo, the Manager of International Services at the college says this is a great opportunity for those who are coming to Lethbridge and are fleeing conflict in their own country.
“You know, international students do go through a lot of hurdles to get to Canada and to come study with us. We understand that there is a big financial investment that they do make. However, there are certain students that need more and it’s out of their control as well. We wanted to just make sure and help those students as well.”
The support will be given to those who demonstrate the greatest financial need, including those who are in Canada on a government sponsorship.
