“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.
The fee to attend the program is $5,700*, which covers accommodation, meals, academic activities and field trips.
The program fee does not include expenses associated with travel to and from campus, or money for incidentals such as laundry and souvenirs, which are the responsibility of each family.
* For international students, the fee is $9,500 CDN. More Details
A range of financial support is available for those with demonstrated financial need, including bursaries, travel bursaries and scholarships. (Participants will pay anywhere from the full fee to zero.) 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 participants activate further resources to contribute to the program fees so the program is financially accessible. This includes fundraising tips to access service clubs and other potential donors in the community.
We also have a partnership with HigherEd Points where family and friends can pool their travel points and exchange them for dollars to put towards the SHAD program fee.
“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
