A bursary is a monetary award similar to a scholarship – the value does not have to be repaid.
It is awarded primarily on financial need rather than academic achievement.
All applicants who receive an offer of admission received information on “Financing Your Studies”, and the Entrance Bursary Program.
The Entrance Bursary Application deadline is June 30, 2009 (students who have not applied by this date may still be considered for a bursary by completing the general bursary application available as of September)
Step 1 Confirm your Loan/Grant Certificate has been issued.
Check the status of your OSAP application on Carleton Central. If your status is
shown to be “Loans Received. File Processed” then your initial OSAP Loan/Grant
Certificate is ready for you to pick up from the Awards Office as of September.
Step 2 Consult the Release Schedule.
To find out when you can come in to pick up your loan/grant certificate, consult the
Loan/Grant Release Schedule posted on the Awards Office website early August.
Step 3 Pick up your initial OSAP Loan/Grant Certificate.
You must pick-up your Loan/Grant Certificate in person at the Awards Office
(202 Robertson Hall) so that we may confirm your registration and review the
document with you prior to releasing it. You will need to bring with you your
Social Insurance Number (SIN) card and one piece of valid Federal or Provincial
Government-issued photo-identification (e.g. driver’s license, age of majority card,
passport). We must verify your identity with these documents before we can
release your OSAP Certificate to you.
You have applied and been approved for OSAP funding, but how will you access it?
