Trey Purdie Memorial Scholarship

The Trey Purdie Memorial Scholarship was developed in memory of Trey Purdie, an exemplar young, rural Central Alberta resident and former AHSRA member.

There are two separate award opportunities available through the Trey Purdie Memorial Scholarship. Applicant criteria for the awards is as follows: 

  •  CESD/Red Deer County residents: Deadline: May 31. All applicants must reside on a working farm or ranch, and also be either a Red Deer County Resident or be graduating from a school within the Chinook’s Edge School Division.  $1,000 award.
  • AHSRA: Deadline: April 1. All applicants must be in good standing with AHSRA and graduating from high school.  (These applications are available through AHSRA). $2,000 award.

Note: As per CRA regulations, our Foundation is not at liberty to disburse the awards directly to recipients. Rather, we release the funds directly to the post-secondary institution, which then credits the student’s tuition account.

Each award has its own criteria, deadline and submitting process. Please read all pieces of the application carefully.

Deadline: May 31, 2024 

Since 2017, the Trey Purdie Memorial Scholarship has awarded over $10,000 in scholarships.
