Financial Aid

Our Financial Aid and Awards team administers a variety of programs that either reward academic achievement, provide financial assistance to address a demonstrated need or a combination of both. This group is here to help you with:

  • Financial assistance
  • Scholarships and bursaries
  • Financial literacy and budgeting
  • Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) questions
  • On-campus employment

Scholarships, awards and bursaries

At Durham College (DC), the Financial Aid and Awards office provides students with opportunities to help fund their educational costs. These opportunities include in-course scholarships based on GPA; bursaries based on financial need; and financial awards generously contributed by external donors. For more information regarding in-course scholarships, bursaries and external awards, please visit the Financial Aid and Awards page regarding these funding opportunities.

Government financial aid

Many students will use government financial aid funding to assist with their post-secondary costs. If you are a resident of Ontario, you may be eligible for federal and/or provincial loans and/or grants through OSAP.

You can visit the OSAP website for more information and to access the OSAP Estimator.

Find additional helpful information regarding OSAP on DC’s Financial Aid and Awards page.
