These loans are granted to assist with the tuition and other expenses associated with furthering your education (such as textbooks, rent and food). Since JFLT educational loans are intended to supplement existing financial assistance programs, if your school is eligible for OSAP, you must bring proof of application. Your school does not need to be OSAP eligible and you do not need to have received OSAP.
