Grants for assistive technology and services

As a student experiencing a disability, you may require assistive technology and/or services to show your academic potential at Mount Royal.

Examples of assistive technology include computers with screen reading software (e.g. JAWS or ZoomText), voice-activated software (e.g. Dragon Naturally Speaking), or audio recording devices (e.g. Livescribe Pen).  Services may include sign language interpreters, academic strategists, or tutors.

If you are a student experiencing a permanent disability, you may be eligible for the following grants:

Canada Student Grants

When you apply as a student experiencing a permanent disability and qualify for a Canada Student Loan, your eligibility for Canada Student Grants will be automatically assessed for: 

  • $2,000 per school year for students who have been assessed as experiencing a permanent disability.
  • Up to $8,000 per school year for the Grant for Services and Equipment for Students with Permanent Disabilities.  This grant covers exceptional education-related costs associated with a student's disability.
