Students working in the health sector will be able to keep the scholarship even if they earn too much this autumn.
Many students contribute with significant work in the health and care sector during the pandemic. To prevent those who show up from losing financially, the government removed the income limits for these students.
Now the government proposes to extend this plan throughout the year.
“The health sector is still in need of labor due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Students who apply should not have to worry that a lot of extra work will go beyond the grant. We therefore propose to extend the scheme we introduced this spring,” said Minister of Research and Higher Education Henrik Asheim (H) in a press release.
Students who receive scholarships throughout the year can initially earn up to NOK 188,509 without reducing the aid, but now students working in the health and medical care sector can disregard this restriction.
