The MNO is pleased to offer eligible Post-Secondary Education Students access to the MNO’s Post-Secondary Education (PSE) Travel Support Program. This initiative will provide eligible applicants with a one-time travel subsidy to assist with the costs of travel to school. To be eligible for this program an applicant must:

  • Currently be a Métis student enrolled into an accredited post-secondary program at a recognized University or College in Ontario
  • Be required to travel more than 300 kilometers, one way, to their Post-Secondary Institution
  • Be a MNO citizen or have a letter of eligibility from the MNO Registry 

Travel subsidies are determined by using a rate of $0.55/km for a maximum one-time subsidy of up to $400 and are available on a first come first served basis until available funding is allocated.

If you need any support navigating services at your Post-Secondary Institution or have any questions about this program please direct any questions to psesupport@metisnation.org
