Session Description

The National Educational Association of Disabled Students (NEADS) is conducting a student narratives project on the difficulties of navigating Canada’s student financial aid system for students with disabilities. We are especially interested in the experiences with government grants and loans programs. Stories will inform our advocacy to improve financial aid in Canada for students with disabilities. Narratives will be used in our communications with the Canada Student Loans Program and provincial/territorial student assistance programs.
