A Better Experience Starts Here.
Polar Communications is a local telecommunications cooperative serving the Red River Valley and surrounding areas. We are proud of our rural roots, which stretch back to 1952, when a group of residents teamed up to bring telephone service to their neighbors. This care for our community has persisted through the decades, and we express it in ways that go beyond the literal phone, internet, security, and IT services we provide. We invest in new technologies and create new products that address today’s challenges. But more importantly, we give to good causes, fund scholarships, and take actions that make life easier for our members and non-members alike; ones that support the towns we serve and make them more attractive places to live and work. Because when our small towns thrive, so do the people in them.

Walters Scholarship in the amount of $2,000 each is being awarded to fifteen graduating high school seniors who plan on continuing their education at an accredited 2-year or 4-year college/university or vocational-technical school. Recipients’ parents or guardians are full-time residents in the Polar Communications and Subsidiaries service area and have a voice or broadband Internet service account. Along with an application, students were asked to submit an essay answering the question, “What field or major do you intend to enter and how might it impact your rural community?”
