The Aboriginal Post Secondary Education and Training (PSET) bursary program requires a separate online application from the Laurier general tuition bursary program.  Eligible students may receive a Laurier general tuition bursary, a First Generation bursary, as well as a PSET bursary.  The amount granted per student through the PSET program ranges in value between $1,000 and $3,500. 

This program is funded by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities.  Due to the amount of available funding, not all eligible candidates may be granted funding through this program.

All full and part time graduate and undergraduate students who meet the eligibility criteria can apply for a PSET bursary, and are NOT required to complete an OSAP application for the PSET bursary program.  While an OSAP application is not required, applicants are required to meet the residency requirements (long term resident of Ontario).

Program Requirements for 2013/2014:

1) completion of the online copy application form on LORIS by the deadline

2) completion of the PSET essay question (included on the application on LORIS) by the deadline

3) completion of an online student financial statement (included on the general student profile) for the applicable academic year ,by the program deadline 

The financial statement is available either through the completion of the general online student profile(s), and/or through the PSET Bursary application; only one form is required per academic year.
