How's Your Infrastructure Doing?
Infrastructure is important! After all, a functional infrastructure system is the physical foundation of a healthy, productive, and vibrant community. Without it, our lives would be a lot less convenient and a lot more difficult.

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).
