Scholarship program


At Red River Communications, we are honored to recognize students seeking higher education, both in the vocational fields and general studies.

The Red River Communications College Scholarship Program recognizes and encourages the students’ academic achievements within our service territory by helping defray the costs of furthering their education. Starting December, students now have the opportunity to apply for one of twelve $1000 scholarships, directly with us.

Red River Scholarships will be awarded to a son/daughter of a parent/legal guardian who is an active cooperative member or customer of Red River Communications as defined by the Articles and Bylaws of this cooperative. In addition, the scholarship recipient’s family must currently be receiving one of our core services, broadband Internet, Ag Wireless Internet, phone service, or television.

Scholarship guidelines will be available each year in December. Contact us for more information at 1-701-553-8309, or email us at
