Aid & Awards for Indigenous Students
There are a variety of financial aid and awards available specifically to students that self-identify as Indigenous (First Nation, Inuit or Métis). Additionally, Indigenous students may also be eligible for McMaster University’s Work Program, bursaries, scholarships and various federal and provincial student loan programs.
No. Indigenous students do not have to declare funding they receive from PSSSP on their OSAP application. Also, scholarships and bursaries will not affect your PSSSP or OSAP entitlement.
You do not need to receive OSAP to apply for scholarships via AwardSpring. To apply, you must first complete common application. You can then and find all the scholarships you are eligible for and apply individually for each.
