Getting and keeping cash as a student

Also, Ogrant brings multi-media into the forefront of this process. Even something as simple as making a video explaining why the candidate needs the grant applied for can be one of the processes by which students apply. Another current process involves students creating a message "from" each of four nations that Canada is involved with on a image template. The big deal here is not just the media method, but that members of the Ogrant website vote on the submissions. The above example has "community support" weighted to 30% of the criteria per submission.
While Ogrants is helping you bring in cash for tuition, another program is looking to keep cash in your pockets. The Guelph Student Savings program is run in Guelph by Front Row Centre Productions. Essentially, the idea is that Guelph Student Savings has arraigned for various businesses around Guelph to provide student discounts. In exchange, Guelph Student Savings promotes these businesses to the Guelph student population. Remember, when you're buying something, flashing your student ID might save you cash. You can check out the participating businesses the GSS website at www.guelphstudentsavings.com
