SHAD Valley Applications due November 19th

What is SHAD?
SHAD is an enrichment program where high potential high school students spend 4-weeks in July living at a university, while engaging in hands-on experiential learning in STEAM & Entrepreneurship. Participants engage in lectures, labs and workshops, meet like-minded peers from across Canada, and receive the SHAD Fellow designation, which is recognized by universities & scholarship providers.

Who can apply? SHAD looks for students who are involved in their communities, creative and keen learners. It is a competitive application process and the deadline is November 19, 2018.

What about cost? A range of bursaries are available to ensure the program is fully accessible to students with demonstrated financially need. Last year, SHAD provided over $1 million in bursaries – the cost of the program should never be the reason a student does not apply.

Anything else I should know? SHAD values diversity and is focused on reaching students from formerly underserved areas – this includes students who come from rural/remote areas, diverse economic backgrounds and Indigenous students.
