SHAD is a unique pre-university experience where participants can explore campus life, including living in residence. Students will enjoy the best of university life, from the community of a dorm, to the excitement of experiencing real-life labs and equipment, mentored by top researchers. Each of SHAD's host universities provides an immersion in STEAM disciplines (science, technology, engineering, arts and math, in an integrated, multi-disciplinary format). Each year, SHAD provides the opportunity for 800 students from across Canada and internationally to attend a month-long summer program, in-residence at one of our Canadian host universities, focused on STEAM (science, technology, egineering, arts & math).

Note: The application deadline has passed for 2017. The online application for the summer 2018 program will be available starting in mid-September, 2017. Please check back here at that time for details on how to apply, or email info@shad.ca.
