A grant gives you money that you do not have to pay back!  Some grants are specifically for students with disabilities.  

The first step in applying for all of these grants is to apply for a Student Loan.


  • Read any information from Student Assistance carefully. You may be asked to send additional information (like a Pre-Study Report) in order to access grant money.
  • Make sure you understand your responsibilities in receiving grant money. Although grant money is different than a loan, you will have to report on how you spent the money and claim it on your Income Tax Return.  
  • Ask questions! The process may seem complicated at times, but there are a lot of ways to ask for help - online or with a phone call. Student Services can help you figure out what questions to ask and who to ask.
