February 23, 2021 – Holland College: Holland College will launch a pilot project to support prospective students who have been, or currently are, youth in care in Prince Edward Island, college president Alexander (Sandy) MacDonald announced today.
“We understand the barriers that youth in care encounter when they are trying to further their education in the post-secondary environment, and we are committed to providing them with the supports they need to help them succeed,” he said.
The college will waive tuition and related fees for prospective students who are currently in care, or who were in care for at least 24 months when they were minors.
There is no limit on the age of applicants, but they must meet the admission requirements for their chosen program of study, and must be residents of PEI.
