How To Apply For A Bursary

Legion Bursary Application Forms are available at most secondary school guidance offices, and at the financial aid offices of most post secondary education institutions. If you have difficulty locating an application form, contact the Legion branch nearest you.

The responsibility for the completed application form rests with the applicant. If the application is mailed directly to the Ontario command office without the proper information, endorsements, and/or documents, no consideration will be given to it.

The applicant must apply for OSAP. Please see "Conditions" (Who can apply?) for more information.

Please ensure that you have the most recent version of the application. The most recent versions have the date September 1998 in the lower right corner of the last page of the application.
