The Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) and the Ontario Special Bursary Plan (OSBP) are available. In addition to the OSAP and OSBP programs, Mohawk College also offers awards from private sources (institutions, corporations, organizations, businesses, and individuals). Awards are based on academic achievement, financial need, or a combination of both. The Ontario Student Opportunity Trust Fund (OSOTF) is a unique program with donations from both public and private sources. It provides awards to new and current Mohawk students who are academically qualified and in need of additional resources to finance their education. Over 100 tuition awards of up to $1,000.00 are available through OSOTF.
