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.
Does band funding affect the amount of OSAP I will receive?
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.
