Emergency student loans & bursaries

The Emergency Student Loan Program (ESLP) was established to provide temporary assistance for undergraduate students who are experiencing short-term financial difficulties. The program is not intended to replace other sources of funding, such as family contributions, Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) funding and employment income.

Situations such as delays in OSAP delivery, unexpected expenses or loss of income are typical reasons for seeking assistance through the ESLP. The funding received should be for education-related expenses.

To apply, visit Brock Central at the Registrar’s Office and complete the application indicating that you have an urgent shortfall of funds and that you would accept a short-term interest-free loan. ESLP loans are available up to $500.00.   ESLP loans can normally be released via interac e-transfer on the same business day and are available for you to deposit to your bank account the next morning.

Note: due to COVID-19, Brock Central is closed for face-to-face interactions. During this time the ESLP program has been made available for students online. Please fill out the online application below.

Brock University has created the COVID-19 Student Emergency Bursary help alleviate economic hardships for students who have been impacted by COVID-19. The COVID -19 Undergraduate Emergency Bursary will provide emergency financial aid for undergraduate students who have demonstrated financial hardship or loss due to the COVID-19 pandemic and is available immediately to help students in need. Students may be asked to provide supporting documentation that identifies financial loss or hardship.  Our goal is to assist as many students as possible, as funds exist.  Apply for this funding through the OneApp emergency bursary process, indicating COVID-19 as the reason for your request.

Graduate students should apply through the Graduate Emergency Bursary application https://brocku.ca/graduate-studies/financial-resources/graduate-studies-bursary-funds/
