OSAP (the Ontario Student Assistance Program)

OSAP provides assistance through loans (money you pay back) and grants (money you don't have to pay back). Additionally, if you demonstrate unmet need on your OSAP application, you may be considered by the ministry for the Student Access Guarantee, a source of non-repayable bursary funding.
