MDHA Bursary Applications

Deadline extended to May 17th, 2021

The Metcalfe District Hockey Association (MDHA) will be providing up to 14 bursaries to individual MDHA members enrolled in a post-secondary program commencing in the fall of 2021. We are fortunate to offer two bursaries funded though legacy funds from the Fred Gillis Family. Historically the remainder of the funds for our bursaries were raised by the MDHA Midget A and Midget B Tournaments. Exceptionally this year, the bursary funds will be provided from the reserve funds of the MDHA. The estimated amount of each Bursary will be $500.

ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA

You must be registered in the MDHA for the seasons 2019-20 or 2020-21 and be in good standing.
You must have graduated from high school in 2020 or 2021 and be accepted/enrolled in a post-secondary institution to pursue a career requiring further education or training (e.g. university, college, trade school etc.)
At the discretion of the FAP Coordinator, she may award Conditional Bursaries pending confirmation of acceptance if proof of application is provided; acceptance must be provided by July 31st, 2021.
