I don't think you know for sure until after you've applied for OSAP.

Note the amount of the bursary in your application when you apply for OSAP.

Once you tell them about the bursary they will recalculate your loan. :bom:

I received all my bursaries and such AFTER a few months of completing osap application. So when ever anything changes I go to the financial aid office at school and let them know, this way I won't get screwed a few years down the road when they decide they want some more money back heh.
So my advice, talk to the fin. aid office regularly!

I received a bursary after picking up my osap for my second semester, and I was all freaked out because I didn't know if it would affect OSAP loans in the future. My advice, ask your financial aid office. It's the way to go.
