To help social housing tenants with the cost of post secondary education.
The Dr. Albert Rose Bursary program was established in 1984 by the Ontario Mortgage and Housing Corporation to help public housing tenants with the costs of a postsecondary education. The program is named in honour of the late Dr. Albert Rose who dedicated his life's work to education and social housing.
The Dr. Albert Rose Bursary is a one-time only award program. All members of rent-geared-to-income households in Ontario, including those living in public housing, non-profit, co-op, and private rent supplement units can receive a bursary award, as long as they meet the eligibility requirements.
The Dr. Albert Rose Bursary Program offers two types of bursary awards.
Full bursary awards are available for students attending the first or second year of a program in a recognized post-secondary institution and who are carrying a full course load. The program must lead to a degree, diploma or certificate. Third and fourth year and postgraduate students are not eligible to receive a bursary award.
The maximum award for a full bursary is $3,000. The amount of the award will be based on the number of qualified applicants.
Part bursary awards are available for those who are enrolled in a trade or skills based training program that is at least four weeks in length, or an adult learning program or first or second year courses of a part time post-secondary program.
The maximum award for the part bursary is $1,000. The amount of the award will be based on the number of qualified applicants.
Please be advised that this award is not specifically intended for Grey Bruce students, however, it has either been won in the past by a local student and/or the Foundation felt it was a significant resource for post-secondary achievement goals in consideration of the needs of local students.
