“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 Fellows and Horatio Alger Scholarship winners, Catherine Qi and Shahan Mahmood are change makers that had to overcome some sort of adversity. They share their journeys to SHAD and how our bursary program helps students, like them, thrive.

“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
