Canada Government Student Grants Loans & Scholarships : Apply-online for 2022-2023

Grants and loans for full-time and part-time students

The Canada Student Financial Assistance Program offers student grants and loans to full-time and part-time students. Grants and loans help students pay for their post-secondary education.

  • Apply for grants and loans in one application, directly with your province of residence
  • You don’t need to repay grants you receive
  • You need to repay loans after finishing school, with interest
  • You may be eligible for more than 1 type of grant – when you apply with your province, they will assess your eligibility for all available grants

How much can you get

The amount you can receive depends on several factors, including:

  • your province or territory of residence
  • your family income
  • if you have dependents
  • your tuition fees and living expenses
  • if you have a disability

The amount you can receive in grants and loans is calculated when you apply with your province or territory.

To find out if you can receive Canada Student Grants or Loans, use the federal student aid estimator. Note that this estimator doesn’t take into account the provincial and territorial student grants and loans.
