Is money tight? This might help: Student Housing Services offers five scholarships of $500 each for returning residents.
There are three categories:
1) Returning Student Scholarships
Three of these will be offered per academic year. You can apply if you are an undergraduate student and a returning resident who met the Returning Student application and deposit deadline. You also need:
at least a 70% average
demonstrated financial need as indicated by OSAP or your provincial/territorial loan program
strong community involvement and a reference letter from a
Residence Life Staff member or member of Residence Student Government
The $500 will be awarded as a $250 reduction in your residence fees for each semester of the coming year. You must remain in residence for the entire Fall semester to be eligible for the $250 rebate, and similarly remain in residence for the entire Winter semester to be eligible for the second $250.
