IB students may be eligible for funding

Weston CI’s illustrious International Baccalaureate program took a hit when the TDSB announced that it would not provide funding to students. The cutbacks were part of savings measures.

This week, however, the TDSB announced that it would offer full and partial funding on the basis of need. Students with a family income of less than $75,000 are guaranteed some funding. The amount of the grant will depend on the family’s income, and complete grants covering the $1500 annual fee are available.

Families that make less than $30,000 will have the entire fee covered. Between $30 and $50,000, the TDSB will give a $1000 grant. Those families who earn between $50,000 and $75,000 will receive $500.

Families wishing to apply should do so before January 22.
