A “Rutherford” is a scholarship to recognize and reward the academic achievement of senior high school students and encourage themselves to pursue post secondary studies. To receive this scholarship you must be a Canadian citizen and have a mark of 75 percent to 79 percent. Students can apply once their official high school transcript marks are available and they are enrolled in full time post secondary studies.
This scholarship is named after Alexander Rutherford. He was a Canadian lawyer and politician who served as the first premier of Alberta from 1905 to 1910.
