SUPPORT TO STUDENTS

 

Becoming an SSP Student

Information on the Solstice Sponsorship Program (SSP) for applicants.

The SSP is a program in which students benefit a sponsorship for their education in exchange for outstanding behavior and performance at school, as well as 20 hours of service for a greater good.

Le Solstice accepts to review applications for a student sponsorship based on the minimum criteria below:

  • The applicant is already in the school system and is applying for primary, secondary, university or vocational training.

Le Solstice will prioritize requests from applicants who:

  • Maintain impeccable academic records.
