To discourage educated New Brunswickers from leaving the province in search of work, Premier Bernard Lord is offering post-secondary students up to $10,000 in income tax rebates.

Students enrolled in post-secondary studies as of Jan. 1, 2005, can apply to have 50 per cent of their tuition rebated against their provincial income tax. They can claim up to $2,000 a year to a maximum of $10,000.

Those who are eligible can claim the rebate any time for 20 years after the first-year credit is earned.
