Financial assistance for George Brown College students

George Brown has been monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak in Toronto, and around the world. While we don’t have any reported cases on campus, your health and safety is our top priority. That’s why, as a precaution, classes have been suspended March 14-22, 2020.

Due to this, you are strongly encouraged to upload any financial aid documents instead of dropping them off at the Financial Assistance Office.

  • OSAP Documents: Any documents concerning your OSAP application can be scanned and uploaded online by logging into your OSAP account at In case of any technical difficulty, please email
  • Non-OSAP Documents: Any documents (forms/applications) concerning other bursaries, scholarship, awards, non-Ontario loans can be scanned and emailed to

Please note that the emails must be sent from you George Brown email account.

For privacy/confidentiality reasons, any documents received from an external email account will not be processed.

Note: In certain cases (e.g. BSWD receipts/logs), you may be required to provide original paper copies.

We will post any changes as decisions are made.

At George Brown College we believe that financial resources shouldn't be a barrier to receiving an education. We have resources available to help you pay for your college education, and we encourage you to visit the Financial Assistance Office on your campus for more information.

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.

George Brown College's Awards program recognizes students in need along with those who demonstrate excellence. Scholarships, awards and bursaries assist students with the costs of their education. Emergency funding is also available should a student be experiencing serious financial difficulty due to a sudden and unexpected situation.  In 2018-2019, the awarded funding was $7.9 million.
