Since 2018, the Society for Students with a Disability (SSD) has established a $5000 bursary fund through the Center for Accessible Learning each semester. This bursary helps ensure access to LAP Tutor, Learning Strategist, and Full-Serve Note Taking services for students who do not qualify for funding through the Canada Student Grant program.

To be eligible for the SSD Bursary, you must:

  1. Be a UVic student who identifies as having a disability
  2. Be registered in credit-bearing UVic courses.
  3. Not qualify for Canada Student Grant for Services and Equipment for Students with Permanent Disabilities in the semester you are applying for, herein called the “semester of application”.
  4. Use SSD Bursary funding for LAP services (Tutor/Learning Strategist and/or Full-Serve Notetaking) in the semester of application.

To inquire about applications, please email the Learning Assistance Program at .

If you have any questions about the SSD-CAL Bursary, please contact the Center for Accessible Learning at or 250-472-5494
