I'm looking for financial aid for my graduate course currently pursuing in college in Windsor, Ontario. It will be grateful if I get some financial support for my tuition fees. Kindly provide me details how to proceed further.

Thanks,

hello. I would like to know if it is possible to fund private courses rather than a public institution such as a college?

Thanks

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your question with us.

You can use OSAP to go to a private or public college or university anywhere in the world, as long as it's been approved. Each private career college and other postsecondary schools in Ontario have their own financial aid office with staff trained on how to administer OSAP. If you have questions regarding OSAP, contact your school directly for the answers you require. Other programs will have different eligibility criteria, and will vary depending on the scholarship, bursary, or loan criteria.

We hope this information is helpful, please follow up with us if you have any further questions.

Sincerely,

Hello Officer,
My family is planning to move to Barrie next year, in May 2023. Currently, I am studying at a Manitoba college with student aid assistance. If I apply for a program at Georgian College and get an offer, will I be eligible for OSAP?
I look forward to your kind response!

Hello, I just signed up to this website so I apologize in advance if this is not the place to post this. I am a 60 year old female living with inflammatory poly arthritis . I can not and have not slept in a regular bed since 2013. I sleep in a well used lazy boy chair. I have reached out to many charities (united Way, Get Help/211, Assistive device program, Easter Seals, Lions Club, Kiwanis, Arthritis Society AND the War Amps) ALL of them responded and turned me down as they do not fund for adjustable beds. I found one charity called Ceridian Cares in Toronto and I filled out the application. I sent doctors letters as well as Occupational therapist letters and I was turned down because my area (Cornwall Ontario) had no funds available. Had I known it was depending on my area where I live I would not have applied as I am well aware of the depressed area I live in. Does ANYONE know of a charity that might help me getting funding for an adjustable bed. It is getting harder and harder as I age to get any sleep let alone a restful, heal my body sleep. I apologize as I mentioned if this is not an appropriate post for this thread/website.

Thank you in advance for allowing me to post this issue.
