Rho Alpha Kappa Alumni Association

Toronto, Canada



Every year the RTA School of Media honours its best at an annual Awards Ceremony at Ryerson University. The Rho Alpha Kappa Alumni Association Award is given to a second or third year student who has achieved academic proficiency and demonstrated financial need, as well as made a significant contribution to RTA's sense of community at Ryerson.

The Rho Alpha Kappa Alumni Association Award is in its 18th year and is made possible by an endowed fund established by the association and administered by Ryerson University.  Since 2010 the fund has generated enough money to provide mutiple awards each year.

Rho Alpha Kappa Alumni Association Award

Contact Rho by email

Years of golf tournaments, curling bonspiels, poker games and sundry fund-raising events made it possible for the alumni of Rho Alpha Kappa to establish an undergraduate endowment fund at Ryerson University.

After several years of awarding a cash bursary to a Radio & Television Arts student, in 2004 the association launched the campaign for the endowment fund.

Today the endowed fund exceeds $100,000. That means annual student awards will be presented in perpetuity.
