Do you have stories of challenges you have faced in getting financial aid to support your college or university studies, as a student with a disability? If so, we want to hear from you! The National Educational Association of Disabled Students (NEADS) is collecting student narratives on the difficulties of navigating Canada’s student financial aid system. We are especially interested in your experiences with government grants and loans programs. Your stories will inform our advocacy to improve financial aid in Canada for students with disabilities.
Please share your stories with us by confidential email, with the subject header “Financial Aid Stories”, to: firstname.lastname@example.org Submissions will be collected until Friday, October 23, 2015, at midnight Pacific Time. All personal identifying information will be edited out of stories prior to compilation for use in communications with the Canada Student Loans Program and provincial/territorial student assistance programs. Thank you for your help in improving the post-secondary experience of students with disabilities in Canada!
