Scholarships

There are several scholarship opportunities available to our players.

CMHA Scholarship Program

Cloverdale Minor Hockey Association (CMHA) recognizes the importance for the youth of our Association to continue with post-secondary education as part of the process in becoming productive members of our community.  In 2007/08, CMHA commenced this program and is proud to offer scholarships again this season.

This is a great opportunity for our Midget/Juvenile aged players and officials (referees) to obtain some financial assistance in pursuing their educational objectives; thus I would encourage them to apply for a scholarship.

Program Guidelines

Each season, CMHA will award a minimum of five scholarships of $500.00 each to the applicants who apply and best meet the qualifications.

Eligibility

To be eligible, applicants must be:
(1) currently registered as a player on a CMHA Midget/Juvenile team or be a current official (referee) of CMHA of the same age as Midget/Juvenile players; and
(2) in grade 11 or 12, or finished high school.

Utilization of Scholarships
Applicants in high school will have two years after graduation to utilize a scholarship. Applicants who have finished high school will also have two years to utilize a scholarship.  Scholarship funds must be used for tuition at a post-secondary educational institution – proof of attending a post-secondary educational institution is required prior to receiving a scholarship. Should the scholarship amount be greater than one year’s tuition, the remainder may be applied towards a second year’s tuition.
No individual may receive more than one scholarship per hockey season, but may apply and be awarded a scholarship in more than one hockey season.

Qualifications

  • Academic achievement
  • Good school and community participation and service
  • Participation in hockey as a player or an official (referee)

(Note: The qualifications are not weighted – all the qualifications are equally important.)

How to Apply
Applicants must complete the CMHA Scholarship Application Form (available on the CMHA website) and submit the required material as outlined on the application form.

Selection
Applications will be reviewed by an independent adjudication committee (Scholarship Committee as appointed by the President) consisting of one Executive member, one CMHA member (ideally with a background in education) and one CMHA member who has a background in coaching hockey or being an official (referee).  The Scholarship Committee will present its recommendations to the Executive Committee – the Executive Committee is responsible for making the final decision in regards to the winners of the scholarships.

Deadline for Submission
Applications and supporting material must be received by CMHA at the address listed on the application form no later than March 31, 2017.

BC Hockey Scholarships

Scholarships are awarded annually to BC Hockey registered members to give recognition to those who develop their academic career aspirations while at the same time nourishing their interest in hockey.
