The Muscowpetung Saulteaux Nation Post Secondary Students Assistance program is a federally funded program by the Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada. The PSSA Program follows their own Post Secondary Education Policy as well as the Indigenous and Northern Affairs National Program Guidelines. The program provides supports to students attending post secondary education such as tuition, living allowance and book allowance.
