RMA Post-Secondary Scholarship

In recognition of the importance of an educated population to the future well-being of rural communities, the

RMA established the RMA Post-Secondary Scholarship Program in 1995. The program is designed to encourage

rural Albertans to pursue further education, and thereby enhance the ability of these rural residents to make

meaningful contributions to their communities in subsequent years. A scholarship in the amount of $1,000 is

presented to one successful applicant from each of the RMA’s five districts annually.

The 2022 application deadline closes August 31, 2022. For information on eligibility and the application procedure, please visit RMA's website.
