About Student Awards & Financial Aid

Financial assistance programs have become increasingly important with the rising cost of post-secondary education. Student Awards & Financial Aid provides the necessary programs, information and advice to assist students as they pursue their goals at Waterloo. Our programs include government aid, including OSAP; awards, scholarships and bursaries; as well as work-study opportunities.  

Student Awards & Financial Aid staff are committed to assisting students with honesty, integrity and respect.

If you are not satisfied while interacting with the Student Awards & Financial Aid office, we encourage you to first contact us to see if we can help to resolve it. If you are still not satisfied you can review Policy 70 – Student Petitions and Grievances for more information.
