SOL Application Process

Attend Our Info Session

The best way to learn more about SOL is to attend our annual information session. At the information session, you will learn more about the structure of SOL and hear from previous participants about their experiences.

The SOL 2024 info session has already occurred and a video of this year's info session can be found below.
