Space in Catalyst programs is limited, and demand often exceeds supply. All programs are by application only. The application process is used to get to know each applicant and ensure that the group is comprised of deserving individuals.
Each program has specific application components, deadlines, and evaluation requirements. Please see the program specific pages for more details.
There is no fee to apply to Catalyst programs. The registration fee is due only upon acceptance into the program. Registration fees vary from one program to another.
A special bursary program is available for those in financial need.
We recommend completing your application online. If you require an alternate method, please contact the Catalyst Office.
