Financial Resources

Education comes at a cost –  a high one. Most students rely on government grants, paired with scholarships and bursaries, to fund their education. We want students to have as much time as possible to apply for funding sources. That’s why we’ve gathered top financial tools in one spot. The less time you spend searching for scholarships, the more time you have to apply. Good luck!

CSA Financial Tools Website

CSA’s financial tools website helps current and future college students plan their finances to fund their education. Individuals can search for bursaries, grants, repayable loans, and scholarships using the “Funding Sources” page, or they can create and save a budget using  the “Plan my Budget” section.

CSA Leadership Scholarship

This is an annual leadership scholarship presented by the College Student Alliance (CSA) Board of Directors to 15 outstanding individuals across the province of Ontario who have demonstrated leadership qualities within their college community through volunteerism, leadership and participation in organizations primarily focused on helping others.
