Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP)

The Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) is a supplemental government assistance funding program. OSAP makes it easier for you to achieve your dream of attending university and college. Did you know that OSAP is not just a loan? You’ll automatically be considered for grants as well as loans. While the loan portion does require you to pay back the money provided to you, grants do not – it‘s free money you can use to offset expenses related to your education.

Scholarships, awards and bursaries

Your education is one of the most important investments you’ll make. We offer over $11 million in funding each year to new and returning students. While scholarships recognize academic achievement, awards are based on a combination of criteria including academic merit and financial need. Bursaries are based solely on financial need. Take a closer look at the various funding opportunities available to you.

There are plenty of other ways to secure the financial resources to help you with the expenses of attending Lakehead-Georgian. Whether you’re looking for loans from another province outside of Ontario, or even a short-term loan for emergency situations, there are options. Don’t forget to start thinking ahead about repaying your loans.
