Applying for Sponsorship
At the same time that you are completing and submitting your application to either the Ontario College Application Service (OCAS) or to the Ontario University Application Centre (OUAC), you need to be completing the Wiikwemkoong Board of Education Post-Secondary Educational Assistance Application Form. This is an online form and it will be available in February each year and access will be given, through the link provided below.
In order to process your PSSSS Application for Sponsorship in a timely manner, you must complete all necessary information on the Application for Educational Assistance, and submit the required documentation.
Please review the FAQ’s on this page and the Post Secondary Student Policy while completing your application.
You must submit an application for each academic year and/or semester that you wish to attend.
Applications will be considered based on eligibility and availability of funds.
Please contact the PSSSS office if you have any questions as you are completing this application.
Upon receipt of your application, the Navigators will issue an Application Received letter with a checklist of outstanding documents via email. Please submit outstanding documents to the "file manager" in your student portal in a timely manner (incomplete applications will not be assessed). Please keep in mind that review for both application dates will take place once the deadline has passed. Please give the Navigators a week to review the applications before checking on the status of your application. The decision will be available in the student portal.
If your application was received in full on or before the deadline date, it will then be assessed for eligibility and a recommendation will be made. Recommendations are reviewed based on available funding. If an application is eligible and funding is available an approval package will be issued. If an application is ineligible or funds are no longer available an ineligibility letter will be issued.
