OSAP - The Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) is a financial aid program that is funded and provided by the federal and provincial Ontario government. It can help you pay for college or university, offering funding through grants and student loans. When students apply, OSAP automatically considers both grants and loans. (If students don’t want a loan, you can decline it after your application is approved.) They also have programs to help you repay your student loan once you’re done school.
The repayment of the OSAP loan becomes the responsibility of the individual. The M’Chigeeng First Nation Education Department does not provide reimbursement for OSAP loans. MFN Education Post Secondary Students under assistance cannot have OSAP at the same time.

Most organizations have a criteria, which corelates with your eligibility for assistance. That criteria can be in relation to:
Student financial assistance is to assist eligible students who do not have the resources to meet the costs of PS education.
The purpose is to supplement, not to replace, the financial resources that you (and your family, if applicable) are expected to contribute. It is not the purpose of student financial assistance to supply all the assistance you may need to meet your educational and living costs.
It is recommended that you apply as early as possible to allow sufficient time for verification and processing.
Though loans, grants, bursaries, and scholarships may be available to you through OSAP, many students should check out what their post secondary institution has for school-specific funding options.
