Today Polar Communications announced that Kaylee Kemp, Cavalier, has received a scholarship through the Foundation for Rural Service (FRS). Founded in 1994, FRS is the philanthropic arm of NTCA–The Rural Broadband Association, of which Polar is a member.
The FRS Scholarship Program awards one-time scholarships to students from rural communities for their first year of college, university, or vocational-technical school. Each student is sponsored by an NTCA member company that may also contribute a portion of the scholarship award. This year FRS awarded a total of $124,000 for 42 scholarships to students across the country.
“Providing opportunities for young people in rural communities is a core mission for FRS. We are proud to partner with NTCA member companies and generous individuals in the industry to make these scholarships possible each year. Congratulations to Kaylee,” said Pam Becker, Executive Director of FRS.
A full list of scholarship awardees and the NTCA member companies who are partnering with FRS to make the funding possible is available online at www.frs.org/programs/youth-programs/scholarships.
