Manitoba Trade Scholarships
Tuition Fee Income Tax Rebate
Manitoba graduates from apprenticeship programs can apply to receive 60% income tax rebates on tuition fees based on their specific studies. That is a HUGE amount of money, and a sure-fire way to relieve financial stress and focus on studies and some series career goals. The amount varies, as do deadlines, so hopeful applicants are encouraged to contact Manitoba Finance for more information.
