Jun 28, 2022

To invest in a better future for our communities, RTOERO offers an annual scholarship program and awards scholarships valued at $3,000 each to 20 post-secondary students. The scholarships will help the students to pursue goals that support well-being, and the health of our people and places.

One student nominated by District 35 Dryden received a scholarship in 2021:

Teagan Rolf von den Baumen is studying in the Doctorate of Pharmacy program at University of Toronto and plans to pursue a hospital pharmacy residency, gaining further expertise in the management of complex health conditions.

RTOERO members are encouraged to recommend students for the annual scholarships. Over the past 21 years, RTOERO has awarded scholarships totaling over $500,000.

To apply for the scholarships, students had to describe how their studies and goals relate to RTOERO’s purpose, what influenced them to pursue their intended career and how their contributions (to family, school, work, community) have aligned with RTOERO’s goal and values.

This year’s recipients are studying in programs including nursing, medicine, speech-language pathology, social work, health sciences, biomedical engineering, physiotherapy, pharmacy and education.
