The Ed Stelmach Community Foundation Scholarship has been created to support graduating high school students in their journey into post-secondary education.
The ESCF is dedicated to assisting Alberta charities - especially those in the greatest need who may not receive the funding they deserve or require. This scholarship is a reflection of that commitment. Geared towards students who may require financial assistance, the scholarship will be given to the applicants who demonstrate perseverance through difficult situations, are committed and involved in their community, and who have clearly determined and outlined their future goals. Three scholarships will be awarded annually, each consisting of $2,750.
In order to apply:
The applicant must be completing Grade 12 at a public or Catholic high school in the following towns/cities: Lamont, Two Hills, Fort Saskatchewan, Ryley, Tofield, Viking, and Vegreville.

A scholarship in the amount of $1,000 is presented to one successful applicant from each of the RMA’s five districts annually.
