OHF Scholarship Program

OHF Scholarship Program

Date: Mar, 09, 2023 12:30 PM EDT

The Ontario Hockey Federation (OHF) is excited to announce the opening of the application period for the OHF Scholarship Program. Applications will be accepted until May 19th, 2023.

The Scholarship Program was introduced in 1997 to recognize and reward 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 program rewards outstanding young people who display an incredible amount of commitment both at the arena and in the classroom. The recipients are determined on the basis of academic achievements, hockey involvement and community involvement.

A special thanks to BFL Canada who donates a scholarship to a deserving player for their continued education. The Jim Stirling Scholarship Bursary is awarded to the top OHF Scholarship applicant who receives the top ranking from the OHF Scholarship Committee. This applicant will receive and be honoured with the Jim Stirling Scholarship.

“Narrowing the list of applicants to the final recipients is a difficult task each and every year. However, it brings great pleasure seeing firsthand the quality and skills our future leaders bring forward,” said OHF Director and Scholarship Committee Chair Hugh Riddle.

In ensuring the program continues to have vast reach within the OHF jurisdiction we kindly ask the Members and Associations for support in spreading awareness.

Eligibility and application details can are accessible on OHF Scholarship website.
