Ted Rogers Scholar Awards
Through generous donations from Rogers Communications employees, we have been able to develop Ted Rogers Scholar awards for undergraduate/summer trainees. What began in 2015 as two awards of $1,000 has risen to seven awards of $2,000 in 2017.
Congratulations to our Scholar award recipients! Seven of 17 applicants received awards of $2,000.
These awards were made possible by a generous donation from Rogers Communications employees.
