Funding Sources

Appropriate funding is critical for students who are deaf-blind as costs surrounding communication and language supports can be significant.  As well, attendance requirements for some financial aid programs may prove problematic for you as even one course may be a significant load.

There are a number of funding systems that students need to consider.  Options available include the British Columbia Student Assistance Program, Vocational Rehabilitation Services, Canada Study Grant and the Canada Student Loan Program.

The institution that you plan on attending can help you navigate these funding choices.
