OSAP Funding for Micro-Credentials

The Ontario Student Assistance Program has recently began to offer funding for micro-credentials, including a limited number of Rotman Initiative for Women in Business Programs. This new resource is part of Ontario’s micro-credentials strategy, helping learners access more opportunities to train or upskill for in-demand jobs through loans and grants. This micro-credential benefit refers specifically to short, professional development programs like those offered through Rotman Initiative for Women in Business Programs.

Visit the OSAP Micro-Credentials website to confirm if a Rotman Initiative for Women in Business Program is eligible and for OSAP information and application instructions. 


How to Enrol

Once you have selected a micro-credential program and confirmed its OSAP eligibility, apply for the program. 

Log-in to your OSAP account to apply for funding for micro-credentials.

The process requires you to fill out a form from University of Toronto Enrolment Services, which you can download here. If you are having trouble, please send the form to with your information to get assistance in completing the form.
