Applications now being accepted for OHF Scholarship
Submitted By OHF on Thursday, February 4, 2021
The OHF Scholarship Committee is now accepting applications to receive an OHF Scholarship.

Introduced in 1997, the Ontario Hockey Federation (OHF) Scholarship recognizes and rewards dedication in education and hockey. The program provides financial assistance to registered OHF participants to offset the cost of post-secondary education. Since its inception, the OHF has distributed more than $450,000 to over 400 post-secondary students.

Each year, the OHF awards $1,000 scholarships to 30 outstanding young people who display an incredible amount of commitment both at the arena and in the classroom. The scholarship recipients are based on academic achievements, hockey involvement and community involvement.

To be eligible to receive a scholarship, a candidate must be registered for three (3) of the previous four (4) years within the OHF in any capacity (player, trainer, coach, official), a registrant in good standing with the OHF, and enrolling in post-secondary full-time studies in Canada for the first time.

Recognizing the limitations that COVID-19 presented to minor hockey opportunities in Ontario, the OHF broadened the registration range to ensure players who could not register in 2020-2021 for an OHF program (through no fault of her/his own) may still apply for the 2021 award.

To apply, the candidate must provide a letter (maximum 500 words, single-spaced) outlining his/her contributions to hockey, what the game of hockey has meant to him/her, and other information - such as volunteer or community involvement. Candidates must provide a letter of reference from their current school and a hockey-related organization on official letterhead (non-relative) plus a complete copy of an Official School Transcript with a summary of mid-term marks.

Applicants will be scored based on their contribution to hockey, their community, and school-related submission (the scoring is equally weighted). The number of recipients - and the amount awarded to each - will be determined by the OHF Scholarship Committee. Where financial assistance is needed, consideration will be given.

Applications are due to [email protected] by May 14, 2021.
