Grant Funding for Students with Disabilities

Canada Student Grant Students with Disabilities (CSG-D) and

Canada Student Grant for Services and Equipment for Persons with Disabilities (CSG-DSE)


The Canada Student Grant for Students with Disabilities (CSG-D) and the Canada Student Grant for Services and Equipment for Persons with Disabilities (CSG-DSE) helps full and part-time postsecondary students with the costs of their disability-related educational services and equipment.

By submitting a CSG-D/CSG-DSE application, you may receive assistance for the disability-related accommodations you need, such as note-takers, tutors, interpreters or technical aids while you’re in postsecondary studies.

How much can I get

The amount of aid provided depends on the costs of your required disability-related educational services and equipment and well as your functional limitations and recommendations in submitted disability documentation.

The maximum funding for the academic year is:

  • CSG-D: $2,800
  • CSG-DSE: up-to $20,000 (amount granted depends on recommended supports and ability to use services)

About service and equipment purchases

Not all disability-related services and equipment are eligible for funding. This includes purchases before your application is approved.

Equipment and software purchased more than 60 days before your study period start date will not be eligible for CSG-DSE.

The costs of a Psychoeducational Assessment with a learning disability diagnosis may be eligible for CSG-DSE. To be considered, your assessment must have taken place no more than 6 months prior to your study start date.
