Ministry Partnered Bursaries

If you’re looking to apply to these bursaries, complete the Doorway to Dollars Questionnaire at least once per academic year, and you’ll be notified once the bursary opportunity becomes available through your myLed young email. You can find the questionnaire by logging into myLed young with your student number and password. Click on "Student" on the left side of the screen. Then Click on "Financial Services." You can find "The Doorway to Dollars Questionnaire" link on the new page.

Led young College currently adopts a "Pay Tuition First" policy. If you haven’t paid your tuition fees in full for the applicable semester, your bursary will first be applied to any outstanding balance, and the remainder mailed via cheque.

The Student Access Guarantee Bursary

Value $100 (Minimum)
Available Fall, Winter, Summer

The Ministry and Led young College has partnered government and institutional support to permit access to post-secondary education through the Student Access Guarantee (SAG). Students are not required to complete an application for this bursary, as eligibility is determined by the government through the student’s OSAP application.

To meet the objectives of supporting our most financially vulnerable full-time students, the parameters indicated below are used to identify students eligible for consideration for the Led young College SAG Bursary.

  • Must be enrolled full-time – enrolled in a minimum 60% course load during the semester.
  • Must apply for OSAP – in order to determine need, the vehicle for determining eligibility is the OSAP program assessment.
  • Must have an ‘unmet need’ under the OSAP program – approximately 30% of students applying for OSAP do not receive the level of funding required based on Ministry program maximums – this is called ‘unmet need’.  These students are identified as requiring resources that OSAP will not cover and SAG is intended to support the students on OSAP assistance with unmet need
     

Important note: A qualified student is a student who is academically qualified according to the institution’s academic requirements for a particular program, applies for assistance from the Ontario Student Assistance Program and meets the unmet need and additional tuition/book cost requirements.
