The students who participate must plan to return to school in the fall 2021 or winter 2022 semesters.

The taxable scholarships will be up to $13,500 for full-time students and $6,750 for part-time students.

"With this new measure, we are calling on nursing students to come and support our existing teams," Health Minister Christian Dubé said in a statement.

"Volunteers will be welcome: their invaluable help over the coming months will help us better meet the needs of patients, whether they have COVID-19 or other health problems."

"Students wishing to participate in this measure must express their interest at their university before January 11, 2021," the government explains in a press release.

The scholarships will go out when the students return to school.
