British Columbia Assistance Program for Students with Disabilities

This program offers a grant of up to $12,000 a year to assist with exceptional education-related costs for students with disabilities. These costs may include equipment and services needed to access post-secondary education, such as note takers, tutors, readers, attendant care, specialized transportation and/or technical aids.

There are no course load minimum restrictions with this program. Further, you do not need to be eligible for assistance under the BC student assistance program to qualify for this support.

Applications are available from the Adult Special Education Coordinator or the financial aid office at all public post-secondary institutions in British Columbia.
