Every year, Osgoode awards more than $5 million in student funding through both traditional and progressive financial aid programs, all designed to improve access to legal education and reduce debt upon graduation. In addition to offering our own innovative and robust financial aid programs, we make students aware of financial resources available from other sources, including externally funded awards and government supports.
Scholarships, Awards and Prizes
Osgoode offers numerous financial awards for outstanding academic performance and other forms of achievement.
Many students with financial need access funding through our bursary program. Bursaries make up the bulk of our support program: of the $5 million in financial aid we deliver each year, more than $3 million is awarded through bursaries. For students in exceptional circumstances, we offer emergency funding.
Other Opportunities for Support Through Osgoode
We’ve developed several progressive approaches for improving access to legal education at Osgoode – and reducing debt upon graduation.
In addition to financial support provided by Osgoode, there are other awards, scholarships, prizes and essay contests for which you may qualify. For current Osgoode students, the Student Financial Services Office maintains a searchable External Funding Database that contains application information and deadlines.
