Bursary Funding

Bursary for Students with Disabilities and the Canada Student Grant for Services and Equipment

We encourage all students registered with AccessAbility Services to apply for OSAP as eligibility opens up access to the Bursary for Students with Disabilities (BSWD) and the Canada Student Grant for Services and Equipment (CSG-PDSE).

With $1.00 of calculated financial need you are eligible for the bursary which can be used to cover disability-related educational expenses.

Please note: It is not necessary to complete the Disability Verification Form as AccessAbility Services will verify your disability with Student Awards based on your documentation.

To apply for funding through the bursary program you:

  • meet with your AccessAbility Services advisor to discuss your disability-related needs
  • meet with the Adaptive Educational Technologist/Advisor for technology-related needs
  • work with the advisor to complete an application

Please note that you are not required to accept OSAP loan funding in order to be eligible for the BSWD and/or CSG-PDSE.
