Additional Funding for Students with a Disability

Bursary for Students with a Disability (BSWD)

Students that qualify for OSAP and have a documented permanent disability may be eligible for additional assistance through Bursary for Students with a Disability (BSWD).  This bursary is designed to assist with educational and disability related costs for equipment and/or services.

First, students must satisfy OSAP's Permanent Disability requirement by submitting a Verification of Disability Form: 

Second, students must schedule an appointment through the Student Accessibility Services Office to meet with an advisor in order to determine what accommodation(s) are required.  At this meeting an application for a BSWD may be completed and forwarded to Student Awards & Financial Aid for approval.
