CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - July 5, 2005) - Eagle Professional Resources Inc. (Eagle) is pleased to announce that this year's recipients of the SAIT Eagle Scholarship Awards have been selected.

Award recipients include: Andrew Morrow and Robert Purdy of the Bachelor of Applied Information Systems program; and Eldon Siemens and Daniel Sore of the Computer Technology program. Each scholarship is $500 and the selection criterion is based on academic merit and community involvement.

This year, Eagle added two additional scholarships and increased funding to the Scholarship Program by $1,000 to give more students the opportunity for a great career in Information Technology.

Eagle distributes a total of fourteen $500 scholarships annually to colleges in Ottawa, Calgary and Toronto which represents a total $7,000 investment. Awards are available to students attending Algonquin College, SAIT and George Brown College.

"These students work hard to earn this recognition and we are pleased to be able to offer them financial support and incentives for their accomplishments," said Bill Hanniman, Eagle's Vice-President and General Manager of Western Canada. "Not only does Eagle's scholarship program encourage the success of students entering into the information technology sector but also tries to address the coming skills shortages that will return as the economy improves!"
