Your college education is an investment in your future! At SLC, there are many ways we can help if you need financial assistance to complete your education. Scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic achievement while bursaries are given primarily based on your financial need. Federal and provincial agencies provide assistance in the form of grants and loans. For example, as a resident of Ontario and a Canadian Citizen or a landed immigrant, you may qualify for the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP).
