Noah Meltz Program of Financial Assistance

The Noah Meltz Program helps eligible part-time undergraduate students finance their education through non-repayable grants for their tuition costs to a maximum of one credit, along with a tuition allowance, transportation and child-care costs. Students can apply for this grant once during the September to April study period, and once during the May to August study period.

Students will be considered for government grants or bursaries before being considered for the Meltz grant, and must be pursuing their degree on a part-time basis. Non-degree, international, visiting students, and students who are restricted from receiving government student aid for any reason (e.g, student loan defaults, loan overawards, academic progress) are not eligible for this funding.

Part-time Canada Student OSAP loans

Apply for part-time funding on the OSAP website and understand the conditions of kind of funding.

University of Toronto Scarborough students can pick up their loan documents at the UTSC Registrar's Office. Students who are applying for part-time loans, and previously received full-time funding should be aware that the loan agreements for these programs are different. This means that when you enter repayment, you will be expected to manage two separate OSAP loan payments.
