Ontario Student Assistance Program

We encourage all students with financial need to consider applying for Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP). 

OSAP provides financial aid through two kinds of support:

  • grants: money you don’t have to pay back
  • loans: money you need to repay once you’re done school

When you apply for OSAP, you are automatically considered for both grants and loans. If you don’t want to take a loan, you can decline it after your application is approved.

The University of Guelph uses OSAP to determine financial need for all bursaries and Work Study. 

For support in completing your application contact Natasha Young, Aboriginal Student Advisor, at natasha.young@uoguelph.ca or 519-824-4120 extension 52189.
