  6. Accelerate their personal growth by training the mindsets, mental models, and habits of world leaders and CEOs.

  7. Develop their personal portfolio to earn access to exclusive opportunities including internships, conferences and guest speakers.

TKS students from Ottawa came into the program with no tech knowledge, and are now building impressive projects:

  • Kimberly is exploring the future of food with cellular agriculture

  • Aaryan is building a light probe that detects cancer at a molecular level

  • Soumiya is using brain-computer interfaces to solve mental health and depression

Before joining TKS, students go through an application and interview process to be selected. No prior experience in tech is necessary, TKS is looking for students who are curious, ambitious and want to make an impact.

They offer generous tuition support for families, and are offering two full-ride scholarships to high potential Ottawa students with demonstrated need.

Apply by May 31
