General Information

Loans, Scholarships, and Bursaries

Students are strongly encouraged to apply for government loans and major academic scholarships [e.g., Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP), Ontario Graduate Scholarship (OGS), etc.]. Please visit the School of Graduate Studies (SGS) website for full details on funding opportunities for graduate students. Please note however, there is limited funding available for professional master’s students and most of the available funding is bursary support that is based on the financial needs of individual students.

Financial support offered to MHSc students through the Department of Speech-Language Pathology is detailed in the Student Handbook. Applications are solicited by the department as appropriate throughout the program. Students will be notified of their application status after the award has been adjudicated and recipients have been finalized.

Line of Credit

Students enrolled in the MHSc program may be eligible to open a student line of credit at major banks. Please visit your banking institution to explore this alternative.
