Are you a student or do you know a student who is eligible? Here are the conditions:
• Students must be less than four years out of high school and their parents' gross income must be $160,000 or less to qualify for the grant.
• Students with disabilities may receive the grant for up to six years of study.
• The grant for the current semester is $800 for students in a degree program and $365 for students in a college diploma and certificate programs.
This September the permanent 30% off tuition grant will apply to the full school year. Students in a university or college degree program will save $1,600, while students in college diploma and certificate programs will save $730.
Because the grant is calculated to be 30% off the average Ontario tuition, the amount of the grant will keep pace with any increased future costs -- meaning it will always be 30% off the price of tuition.
More than 300,000 students are eligible to receive the grant this year. Students who already receive OSAP will have their applications submitted automatically.
