Ontario: SSE-O Admissions
Student applications are not currently being accepted for the SSE-O Fellowship Program.
SSE-O is an inclusive initiative – individuals from any walk of life are invited to apply for entry into the program. Please contact us if you require additional assistance or accommodation.
We are looking for 20 energetic, driven, and passionate individuals who have a great idea for a social venture. All applicants must be at least 18 years of age before the start of the program.
SSE-O is an untraditional school and its admissions process is equally untraditional. We care primarily about the personal characteristics you bring to your venture and to the classroom. If you have won a lot of academic prizes or achieved great grades, that's wonderful. But if you haven't, no worries. We find that many of the best social entrepreneurs never completed or enjoyed formal schooling.
For these reasons, no paper or formal qualifications are required. However, you will need to demonstrate that you are enthusiastic, determined, and committed to launching or growing your social venture while bringing about substantial social benefit to your community. Entry into the Fellowship Program is competitive, and based on your application form and interview.
