Bursary for Students with Disabilities (BSWD) and the Canada Student Grant for Services and Equipment (CSG-PDSE)

The Bursary for Students with Disabilities program, which is funded through the provincial and federal governments, provides aid to eligible students self-identifying as having either permanent or temporary disabilities.
