Education chiefs want to increase student grants
The Department of Education and Children wants to increase maintenance grants for students from the Island in higher education.
The means-tested grants assist students from the Island with travel and accommodation.
Those studying at University College Isle of Man would receive £180 more per year, while those studying off Island could be over £500 better off each year.
Around a quarter of Manx students in higher education are eligible for the grants
The DEC has set aside £10.3m for student awards and grants this year.
