Ontario Student Grant (Financial Aid)

Ontario Student Grant (OSG)  2018-19

Making tuition more affordable

The Ontario student grant will make average college tuition free for students with financial need from families with incomes of $50,000 or less, and  will make tuition more affordable for middle-class families.

—The introduction of the OSG will result in no Ontario debt for:

      • Dependent students with annual family incomes less than $50,000.

      • Independent students with annual income less than $30,000.

—Students with incomes above these amounts will receive a mix of grant and loan from the Ontario government. The ratio of grant to loan will depend on a student’s family income.

—Note: While many students will incur no provincial debt, part of a students’ federal support is likely to include loan.
