The Princess Auto Foundation’s commitment to its mission to provide financial assistance to pre-employment skilled trades & technology students can be felt across Red River College and numerous other Colleges across Canada.

Since 2008, Princess Auto Foundation (PAF) has donated more than $650,000 to Red River College, alleviating the financial strain of countless students who might otherwise not have been able to pursue a post secondary education.

The majority of the funding for PAF comes from Princess Auto, whose owner, Bob Tallman, is RRC’s Distinguished Alum 2012.

We are grateful to the Princess Auto Foundation for their investment in the future of RRC’s students and applaud their commitment to providing opportunities and leadership for those pursuing a post-secondary education in trades and technology.

With twenty-three $2000 Tuition Assistance awards for those in financial need, PAF is partnering with the College to ensure we can meet industry needs and influence economic growth in Manitoba.

In the fall of 2017, Princess Auto Foundation’s Student Loyalty Program will be available for select trades and will further ease the financial burden faced by so many students.

RRC is grateful to Princess Auto Fountain and all our industry partners who ensure our students have the economic resources to achieve their educational dreams.
