Because SARM understands the vital role administrators play in municipal governance in rural Saskatchewan, we developed the SARM Rural Municipal Administration Scholarship Program to help support administrators.

The scholarship is for students enrolled in the Local Government Administration (LGA) Certificate Program at the University of Regina or the Business Diploma – Municipal Administration at Saskatchewan Polytechnic. Three scholarships of $1,000 each will be awarded annually, paid at the end of the completed semester. Application deadline is October 15th each year and must be supported by confirmation of enrollment during the current year.
