The Nova Scotia government will broaden who is eligible for a bursary meant to promote diversity in the communications field, after Mount Saint Vincent University students and staff said they were concerned it excluded LGBTI students. LGBTI students say accessing bursaries and scholarships can be difficult, as many are not geared toward their community or are not well-publicized. The Communications Nova Scotia annual diversity bursary offers three $1,000 bursaries each year to post-secondary students enrolled in courses such as public relations, journalism or photography.
