OHF Now Accepting Applications for the OHF Scholarship
Date: Jan, 06, 2020 01:00 PM EDT

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. 

OHF Scholarship - About the Program



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 $1000 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 determined on the basis of academic achievements, hockey involvement and community involvement.

To be eligible to receive a scholarship, a candidate must be registered for three (3) years within the OHF in any capacity (player, trainer, coach, official), be registered with the OHF during his/her application season, be a registrant in good standing with the OHF, be enrolling in post-secondary full-time studies in Canada for the first time.

To apply, please provide a letter from the candidate (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, one (1) letter of reference from current school on official letterhead (non-relative), one (1) letter of reference from a hockey related organization on official letterhead (non-relative), a complete copy of Official School Transcript  and a copy of candidates mid-term marks summary.

Applicants will be scored based on their personal contribution to hockey and the community as well as their 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.

Please apply to [email protected] by May 15, 2020.
