Alexander Rutherford Scholarships for High School Achievement


Scholarship Value: $2,500
Awards Available: 100

This scholarship was named in honour of Alexander Rutherford, who had the distinction of being Alberta's first Premier and Minister of Education. He was known for his strong support of public education, particularly the University of Alberta and his active involvement in community affairs.

Purpose

To recognize and reward academic achievement of senior high school students and encourage them to pursue post-secondary studies.

The online application for the Alexander Rutherford Scholarship will be closed for annual maintenance on Friday, April 30.

A) If you are ready to submit your application for the Rutherford Scholarship, please do so before April 30.

B) Students who have a 'Work in Progress' application, and do not submit it by April 30 will need to reapply when the new online application is available in early August.

Eligibility

COVID-19 Pandemic Support - Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, schools may have assigned a credit for some elective courses, meaning students will be missing numerical grades on their official transcript. Typically, students without numeric grades are not eligible for the Alexander Rutherford scholarship. Alberta Student Aid will assign a 90% grade to Unassigned Credit (UCT) courses completed in the 2020 school year to help students meet the scholarships eligibility criteria.

Apply once your official high school transcript marks are available and when you are enrolled in full-time post-secondary studies. Requirements for high school transcript marks will vary.
