The Post-secondary Student Development Fund seeks to provide opportunities for the education, training and development of students from areas in which we anticipate future hiring needs, and therefore seeks to support the following programs from Canadian universities and technical colleges:

• Engineering (Mechanical, Chemical, Electrical, Petroleum)

• Business (MBA, General Business, Marketing, Supply Chain Management)

• Power Engineering

• Instrumentation Engineering Technology

At Shell Canada, we place strong value on diversity and believe that a representative work environment is critical to our business success. Priority will be given to students and student programming initiatives that support the removal of barriers to employment for one or more of the 4 employment equity groups in Canada:

• Women

• Indigenous People

• Persons with Disabilities

• Visible Minorities

Examples of projects and initiatives that could be considered for funding include, but are not limited to:

• Capstone projects

• Student clubs and activities that align with our hiring needs

• Industry-related conferences, sponsorships, forums, trade shows, conventions, seminars (overall event funding, not individual participation to attend)
