Starland County is a member of the Rural Municipalities of Alberta (RMA) Association. The RMA is also recognizing the importance of an educated population to the future well-being of rural communities, and established the RMA Scholarship Program in 1995. The RMA Scholarship Program is designed to encourage young rural Albertans to pursue further education, and thereby enhance the ability of these young people to make meaningful contributions to their communities in subsequent years. A scholarship in the amount of $1,000 is presented to one successful applicant from each of the five districts. The 2022 application term will open May 2, 2022 and will close August 31, 2022.
