SARM 90th Anniversary Student Scholarship

2017-2018 – Appliction period is over (deadline was December 15, 2017) –

In 1995, SARM auctioned off the first copy of their history book, The Building of a Province: Commemorating the 90th Anniversary of the Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities.  This auction netted the sum of $2,600 which SARM contributed to the Centre for Agricultural Medicine. These funds initiated the Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities 90th Anniversary $1,000 Student Scholarship in Agricultural Safety and Rural Health. The Canadian Centre for Health and Safety in Agriculture’s Founding Chairs Program maintains the scholarship.
