SHAD is an investment in the future, and it costs nothing to apply. The fee to attend the program is $4,500*, which includes accommodation, meals, academic activities and field trips. Bursaries and scholarships are available. (Please note that the program fee does not include expenses associated with travel to and from campus, which are the responsibility of each family.)
The full cost to deliver the program per student is $8,000. As such, SHAD is investing approximately $4,000 per student, which is made possible by the community of generous supporters, including SHAD Alumni, corporations, foundations, government and individual donors.
Don't hesitate to apply! We want every student who fits the SHAD profile to experience the excitement, community and challenge of our four-week summer program and the benefits of the SHAD alumni network. Once accepted, SHAD will work with you to address any proven financial need associated with the opportunity.
SHAD offers support including:
A large bursary fund for participants with proven financial need, including travel bursaries
Scholarships based on overall strength of application, automatically open to all applicants
Information about how to apply for a bursary will be made available to applicants after the evaluation process is underway. Additional information is required in order to be considered for bursary support, and applicants will be provided with full details via email.
Students do not need to submit additional documentation to be considered for a scholarship or award. These are awarded based solely on merit and the strength of the application.
