    Default financial aid @ western

    I am calling tomorrow to make an appt with financial aid, but I'm just curious if other people have had any luck getting additional funding. My OSAP funding for this year is not going to cover everything, so I'm wondering what my options are. Can I appeal it and ask them for more? Are there bursaries? Other ideas?

    While I was in grad school there were a few bursaries that I applied to where I had to write explanations of why I needed it. One was specifically for alleviating daycare costs which I received the full amount every time I applied (once a term). There are also emergency bursaries I think. My sister got one of them once and had to do a similar thing by writing out why she didn't have enough money (heavy course load and wasn't working).

    I received an award through my program dept that is need and merit based and also received a substantial bursary from Western. I was actually stunned by how much I received, I filled out the app when it first came available and received the money in late Dec (I didn't owe any tuition b/c the award had paid the rest of it off). Good luck.
