What is a grant?

Grants are not benefits or entitlements. A federal grant is an award of financial assistance from a federal agency to a recipient to carry out a public purpose of support or stimulation authorized by a law of the United States. Federal grants are not federal assistance or loans to individuals.

How to apply for a grant?

The Canada Student Grants are available to students from most provinces and territories except the Northwest Territories, Nunavut and Quebec which operate their own student financial assistance programs.

When you apply for a Canada Student Loan, your eligibility for most Canada Student Grants will automatically be assessed. You may be eligible to receive more than one grant simultaneously.
