Scholarship information.




In 1997 the Red River Exhibition Association developed a scholarship fund to provide opportunities for young Manitobans to further their post secondary education for a career in the Aerospace Industry. The inaugural Scholarship was established in memory of a special member of our Exhibition family, Bob Lang and has been awarded to students preparing to enter their apprenticeship training in the Aerospace Industry since 1998.

We are pleased to continue with the scholarship presentation in the lasting legacy of Bob Lang and his dedication and belief in young people in the Aerospace Industry.
