GOVERNMENT-SPONSORED STUDENT LOANS AND GRANTS

The Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) is a financial aid program that can make it easier for students and families to go to university. The program offers support for school through two kinds of funding:

  • Grants:moneyyoudon’thavetopayback (conditions apply)
  • Astudentloan:moneyyouneedtorepay after graduation

Funding is available for both full- and part-time postsecondary students, and is based on a number of factors, including your family income. Some students may get their tuition fully covered by OSAP.

For the loan portion, there are also programs to help you repay your student loan once you’re done school.

Both the Ontario and Canadian governments provide this money.
