Applying for the Summer Mentorship Program

How to apply

Please complete the online application to apply to the 2021 Summer Mentorship Program.  Please note that you must be 16 by June 30, 2021 to be eligible for this program.  To begin the application you'll need to connect with your Guidance office so that you can get a copy of your transcript.   The transcript is attached directly to the application in PDF or JPEG format.  A credit counselling summary/high school status sheet is the only accepted alternative to providing your transcript.  Your Provincial Report Card will not be accepted as a substitute for your transcript.  You must have a grade 10 or 11 science, or social science, or humanities credit to be eligible for the SMP.  You earn a high school credit (GLN4O - Navigating the Workplace) if you successfully complete the SMP. 

In the online application you'll be asked to provide your name, your gender, your contact information, the contact information for your Guidance Counsellor/Teacher, the contact information for your parent/guardian, and emergency contact information.  To complete the application you’ll be asked to provide a statement of interest that explains "what makes you a good candidate for the Summer Mentorship Program."  The statement of interest requires some reflection.  You are encouraged to write your answer to this question in advance and then cut and paste it into the application form to avoid any disruptions to the application process.

Deadlines

The deadline for the SMP is March 26, 2021 — but, since space is limited, please apply early.  If you complete and submit the application by January 18, 2021you will be invited for an interview in late January and successful applicants will receive an early admission offer for the SMP.
