“SHAD is a summer program for high achieving students in grades 10, 11, and 12. It is a competitive application process and students who are accepted get to spend the month of July living in residence with 50 like-minded peers at one of our 13 host universities across Canada. The program focuses on science, engineering, math, and entrepreneurship, but there are many challenging recreational activities such as camping, hiking, and cave exploration. You leave the program with 50 great new friends, increased self-confidence, a better understanding of university options, and a strong desire to overcome personal and social challenges. You can learn more about the program at www.shad.ca.” – Amanda Park, Outreach Coordinator
The deadline for the application this year is November 30th.
