RMA Post-Secondary Scholarship Program
In recognition of the importance of an educated population to the future well-being of rural communities, the Association established the RMA Scholarship Program in 1995.
The RMA Scholarship Program is designed to encourage young rural Albertans to pursue further education, and thereby enhance the ability of these young people to make meaningful contributions to their communities in subsequent years. Through the Scholarship Program, RMA provides funding assistance to five rural students each year (one student in each of the five RMA geographic districts).
A scholarship in the amount of $1,000 is presented to one successful applicant from each of the five RMA districts.
