“Without the bursary you provided, I would have never seen stars or considered neuroscience as a post-secondary option. But most importantly, I would have never realized that I too can be a change-maker.” –SHAD Fellow 2015
SHAD is an investment in your future. It costs absolutely nothing to apply. At our award-winning program, you will further develop important capabilities required for the 21st century. This includes problem solving, critical thinking, collaboration, social responsibility, contributing to your community and communication. Upon completion of our four week enrichment program, you will also enjoy the lifelong benefits of being a SHAD Fellow.
There are a range of bursaries available depending on demonstrated financial need, including travel bursaries. Information about how to apply for a bursary will be made available to applicants after the evaluation process is underway.
Additionally, we have developed information to help you activate further resources to contribute to the program fees so the program is financially accessible to you and your family. This includes fundraising tips to access service clubs and other potential donors in your community.
We also have a partnership with HigherEd Points where your family and friends can pool their travel points and exchange them for dollars to put towards the SHAD program fee.
The fee to attend our not-for-profit program is $5,500*, which covers accommodation, meals, academic activities and field trips. Please note that the program fee does not include expenses associated with travel to and from campus, which are the responsibility of each family. Travel bursaries are available based on financial need.
* It should be noted that the full cost to deliver the program per student is $8,000. As such, SHAD is investing approximately $2,500 per student at the outset to empower you to reach your potential. This is made possible by the community of generous sponsors, including SHAD Fellows, corporations, foundations, government and individual donors.
For international students, the fee is $8,000 CDN. More Details
“The bursary you gave me is more than just money. It is an opportunity. Even though SHAD Carleton has ended, SHAD is still ongoing. I am not the same person that I was two months ago: I am more ambitious, more keen to learn, and more outgoing. The word thank you doesn’t even begin to express the scope of my gratitude, so I hope to display my gratefulness by taking what I’ve learned from SHAD to better this province by studying even harder and learning new things each day.” – SHAD Fellow 2015
“SHAD’s focus on accessibility has rewarded some of my students with the opportunity to attend SHAD that otherwise would have only been a dream.”– Nan Devitt-Tremblay, Educator, Senator O’Connor College School
