Education

All Beneficiaries of Nunatsiavut have the opportunity to access financial assistance for post-secondary education. The Department of Education and Economic Development supports the two funding agencies within Nunatsiavut Government. They are the Post-Secondary Student Support Program (PSSSP) and Inuit Pathways.

Education Division Funding Program

There will no longer be a Post-Secondary Student Support Program (PSSSP) or an Inuit Pathways Funding Program. Instead, all students will be funded under the Education Division Funding Program. The Education Division Funding Program is able to provide financial and non-financial assistance to eligible students as well as labour market training and business development for Labrador Inuit. In addition to post-secondary training, the Education Division Funding Program also provides assistance for Mobility Assistance, Work Experience Program, Summer Work Program, and Job Start Supports.
