Shad's mission is to empower exceptional youth to make the world a better place. Every July, about 950 of Canada’s best and brightest come together to experience SHAD’s unique experiential-learning program - rooted in the STEAM disciplines of science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics – while gaining self-confidence, entrepreneurial and workforce skills and a network for life. SHAD Fellows are Change Makers for Canada here at home and around the world. Applications are due November 19th. The program runs June 30 - July 26, 2019.

Shad has a substantial financial assistance fund, as they believe that all qualified students deserve an opportunity to benefit from the SHAD experience, regardless of their financial situation. All students are welcome to apply, including our diamonds in the rough. These are students who have the capabilities to excel, but who may not have the same opportunities because of where they live, their family financial situation, or their lack of access to extra-curricular activities. Read about how SHAD has supported students from rural & remote communities and Indigenous students.
