Ontario College / Uni Students get Free Money!

  • Posted September 10, 2008. Last modified January 6, 2009 by

Not exactly related to computer science, but I thought it would be a helpful post anyways to anyone who might be an Ontario student reading this blog…

I just found out today from Guelph that full-time Ontario College and University students can apply for a textbook / technology grant worth a $100. It may not sound like much but free money is free money and the application takes all of 10 seconds online. That sounds like a pretty sweet hourly rate to me (plus I’m a broke college student myself). Here’s the link if anyone is interested: https://osap.gov.on.ca/eng/eng_osap_main.html. Just click login and look for TTG. According to the FAQ it doesn’t require any proof of financial need or any proof you’ve actually spent the money on textbooks so it’s pretty much no strings attached. For more information about it visit this link: https://osap.gov.on.ca/eng/not_secure/plan_grants_full_sepapp_ttg_12345.htm

Additionally, OGS and NSERC application deadlines are coming up so don’t forget to apply if you are a grad student (or don’t, less competition for me 😛 haha)

    I love the textbook grant. It really does feel like receiving $100 for pushing a button. Although I actually spent it on a textbook I wouldn’t have bought otherwise, so I guess it’s useful (beyond the obvious WOO HOO FREE MONEY! thing, that is).
