The online application for the summer 2018 program is now available. Submissions are due by November 20 (NOTE: anytime on Monday -- or before -- is fine, we have to factor in various time-zones, etc.).
SHAD is a competitive program that attracts grades 10, 11 & 12 youth leaders and Change Makers across Canada and around the world. The application takes into consideration both academic results and extra-curricular participation.
You also have the option of providing a demonstration of your abilities in a written, visual, audio or video format
Compose and save your essays in a word processing program and cut and paste them into our system. There are specific character limits (including spaces); see the PDF version of the application for details.
Save often! The system may time-out and your work could be lost.
You will have a chance to review the information before submission. Once you have submitted your application, you will receive an automated confirmation email. Be sure to check your email's Junk folder, just in case.

* A note about the due date: Admission is based on the overall strength of the application, not when it is submitted. We prefer applications to be received ASAP, to allow the most time for processing and checking for all items (application, academics, reference). All of these pieces are needed before we can send the application out for evaluation.
