We are mindful and purposeful about building community.
We partner with community programs, associations and foundations that work with youth from across Canada with diverse lived-experiences, perspectives, and strengths. These scholarships go towards Shad’s program fee and are possible through the generosity of Shad’s donors.
It is our job to ensure our community is as representative of the Canadian population as possible. We are intentional about providing financial support and opportunity to those that are traditionally underrepresented in STEAM fields to support and inspire equity-deserving students to enter into STEAM pathways and careers.
This year, we are excited to offer 20 entrance scholarships specifically for Black and Indigenous students from across Canada. These scholarships highlight students with community changemaker capabilities, those who are willing to go the mile for their community in an impactful way, and overall excellence.
