The Noah Meltz Program of Financial Assistance helps undergraduate students in certificate, degree, diploma programs, including the Academic Bridging Program, pursue their University of Toronto studies on a part-time basis. Eligible students receive a non-repayable grant for the tuition cost of two credits during the fall/winter and one credit during the summer as well as a set amount for books, transportation to and from classes and child care. In addition to applying for the Noah Meltz Program, students studying on a part-time basis should also apply for OSAP for Part-Time Students funding. The Meltz application will be considered after OSAP results are available. Enrolment Services will review the two assessments to determine which program would provide the best source of funding (e.g., which program provides more total funding or which program provides more non-repayable grant). Students may also be eligible for a top-up Meltz grant in addition to Part-Time OSAP funding.
