A Progressive Conservative government would double post-secondary scholarships and bursaries to $20 million.

Leader Brian Pallister said the Tories would partner with private-sector donors to more than double the current amount of money available for students.

Pallister said the PCs would also raise the total funding available to over $20 million by increasing the Manitoba Scholarship and Bursary Initiative fund to $6.75 million, with a one-third matching component from government to allow for more private donors.
