Ontario Student Grant
As of September 2017, the Ontario government will be transforming the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) to make post-secondary education more accessible and affordable. To help more post-secondary students qualify for grants and access the student loan system, the Ontario government is introducing a new grant – the Ontario Student Grant – which will provide eligible, full-time students access to more generous financial assistance.
Important changes to OSAP
- You are automatically considered for the Ontario Student Grant when you apply for OSAP
- If you're a dependent, post-secondary student and your parents earn $50,000 or less in annual income, you will receive enough grants to cover the average cost of your college or university tuition
- Most students from middle and lower income families will receive more generous grants than ever before
- If you receive the Ontario Student Grant and withdraw from your program within the first 30 days, your grant will be converted to a repayable loan
We encourage all interested students to apply for OSAP as soon as possible in Spring 2017 to find out how much you will receive from this new grant funding.
