<p><strong>What is OSAP?</strong><br /><span style="line-height: 1.6em; font-family: Trebuchet MS; color: rgb(88,88,88); font-size: 1em; font-weight: normal">If you’ve never applied for OSAP, now might be a good time to start. OSAP is a financial aid program funded by the Federal and Provincial government for Ontario students in postsecondary studies. The OSAP application bundles loan, grant and bursary programs in one form. Loans are interest free during full time study, and grant funding is not repayable. The maximum funding available through the program is aproximately $14,000 for single students.</span></p><p><strong><span style="line-height: 1.6em; font-family: Trebuchet MS; color: rgb(88,88,88); font-size: 1em">How do I get it?</span><br /></strong>In order to access funding, you'll need to apply online at <a href="https://osap.gov.on.ca/">https://osap.gov.on.ca/</a>.
