Bursary For Students With Disabilities

The Bursary for Students with Disabilities (BSWD) is one of the components of the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP). The BSWD combines the Canada Study Grants for Students with a Permanent Disability, which is funded by the government of Canada, with bursary funding provided by the Ontario government. The purpose of the BSWD is to help eligible students meet the disability-related costs of post-secondary education. The maximum amount of bursary assistance available is $10,000 per academic year, depending upon the applicant's situation. In order to be eligible for this bursary, students must have applied for OSAP and have been offered a student loan. The bursary is non-repayable and taxable.
