Bursaries & Financial Assistance

Students registered with QSAS may be eligible to apply for awards, bursaries, government programs, and financial assistance.

Information about government assistance programs such as the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP), Queen's bursary support, and awards and scholarships specifically for students with disabilities is available through Queen's Student Awards.

Your Advisor can support the completion of the Bursary for Students with Disabilities (BSWD)/ Canada Student Grant for Permanent Disabilities for Services and Equipment (CSG-PDSE)funding request. All final decisions regarding funding approval are made solely by the provincial and/or federal funding providers.

The BSWD/CSG-PDSE is used to help students offset the costs related to goods and services required to address a specific accessibility or accommodation need. Note that the BSWD/CSG-PDSE requires that the goods and services be indicated on the Psychology Educational Assessment provided to QSAS.

More information about the BSWD/CSG-PDSE, including eligibility criteria, can be found on the Queen’s Student Awards website.

The process of assessing eligibility for a BSWD/CSG-PDSE begins with a discussion with your QSAS Accessibility Advisor. Please speak with your Advisor before beginning the process.
