Ted Rogers Scholar Awards
Through generous donations from Rogers Communications employees, we have been able to develop Ted Rogers Scholar awards for undergraduate or summer trainees. What began in 2015 as two awards of $1,000 rose to seven awards of $2,000 in 2017 (when seven of 17 applicants were funded).
