ARTA Scholarships

In keeping with its continuing support for education, ARTA has two annual scholarships that are awarded to students continuing their post-secondary studies: the ARTA-TW Insurance Degree Scholarship and the ARTA Certificate/Diploma Scholarship.

The Scholarship Selection Committee selects three recipients per scholarship. The winners of the scholarships are direct relatives of current ARTA members. These scholarships recognize academic achievement, community involvement, volunteer work, future goals and personal accomplishments.

If you have successfully completed one or more full years of a certificate/diploma or undergraduate/transfer program provided by an accredited post-secondary institution, we welcome you to explore the following scholarship opportunities.
