Scholarships and Awards
Attracting the best and brightest minds is important at Brock. Annually we award over $4M in merit-based undergraduate awards to incoming and returning students. According to a recent Canadian University Survey Consortium (CUSC) results, 40% of graduating students reported having received an award during their degree.
In 2009-2010, Brock's endowment will fund over $680,000 worth of student scholarships and bursaries.
Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) Loans
Annually, over 6,000 Brock students apply for an OSAP Loan -- roughly 35% of the full time students registered at Brock. In total, Brock students receive approximately $35M of financial assistance in the form of interest free loans, grants and work study.
At 3.7%, Brock's OSAP loan default rate is among the lowest in Ontario post-secondary institutions.
According to a recent survey of graduating students, 40% of Brock students have no debt and the average debt is $1,500 lower than the respondents from other universities.
Work Study (Experience Works)
Along with the Career Services Office and the hiring departments, the Student Awards and Financial Aid Office commits over $1.25 M to student employment on campus. In all, over 450 students are hired through the program. Visit the Experience Works web pages for more information.
