Access Communications awards $20,000 in scholarships to high school graduates in Saskatchewan

Regina, SK – Access Communications Co-operative has announced the 2022 Access Communications Doug Alexander Scholarship Program recipients. The program provides $1,000 awards for up to 20 graduating high school students in Saskatchewan.

“We’re honoured to do our part to support some amazing young people on their academic journey,” said Fran Moran, Communications Manager at Access Communications. “Our recipients strive to make a difference in their hometowns, volunteering their time with their school and community organizations. Concern for community is a co-operative principle, after all, and we can’t wait to see the great things these students go on to accomplish.”

The Access Scholarship Awards Committee selects recipients. The Committee considers students’ contribution to community improvement, academic achievement, and school involvement. Since 2005, the program has awarded over $400,000 to high school graduates.

In addition to the Access Communications Doug Alexander Scholarship Program, the Co-operative awards annual scholarships to students at Saskatchewan Polytechnic in the Computer Networking Technician and the Telecommunications Network Technician certificate programs. Access also awards scholarships at the University of Regina through the Access Communications / Fred Wagman Scholarship in Film & Video.
