Government of Manitoba Funding for Students with Disabilities

One Application – Two Loans

When you apply to Manitoba Student Aid, you become eligible for loans and grants, not only from Manitoba Student Aid, but also from the Canada Student Loans Program.

When you receive and repay your student loans, you deal with both lenders separately.


To remain eligible for Manitoba Student Aid, you must:

  • pass at least 60% of a full course load in each term at a college or university (ask your school if you’re not sure what a full course load is for you)
  • pass 100% of your courses and keep your attendance above 90% if you are going to a private vocational or private training school

Students with a Permanent Disability

If you have a Manitoba Student Aid-verified permanent disability, you are eligible for the same loans and grants as other full-time and part-time students. You may also be eligible for grants that take into account your disability.
