OSAP Applications are Open for the 2020-21 School Year             

Information:

Ontario has launched applications for the 2020-21 Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) for full-time students. Students can now apply to the OSAP program for the 2020-21 school year for help with their postsecondary education costs.

This year, the OSAP application includes an information module to improve applicants’ understanding of the program, their roles and responsibilities as OSAP recipients and provide some basic financial information.
