Bursary for WSMHA Members
Submitted By Charlene Mason on Tuesday, January 8, 2019
Directors of the WSMHA and the Kids First Fund are pleased to announce that we will be continuing a program to provide financial assistance to a WSMHA member enrolled in a post-secondary educational program launched last year. A “Kids First Fund” bursary valued at up to $3000 will be available to a current member of the WSMHA planning to attend a recognized Canadian university, community college or trade school. The recipient will be chosen by a Selection Committee composed of WSMHA and Kids First Fund directors from amongst applicants and nominees “who have demonstrated a commitment to the Game, the Association and the Community”. Potential candidates may apply directly, or be nominated by a third party. 

Nominees/applicants will be required to submit an essay describing how they have demonstrated their commitment to the game of Hockey, the WSMHA and/or the community of Whitchurch-Stouffville. Nominees/applicants may be interviewed by the Selection Committee as part of the selection process. The successful candidate will be announced at the Association’s Annual General Meeting in April. Any current member of the Association wishing to apply, or anyone wishing to nominate a candidate may do so by submitting a Nomination/Application Form available from the WSMHA Hockey Office by February 15.  All applications and nominations will be handled in a confidential manner and distribution limited to the Selection Committee. “We want to recognize and encourage young student-athletes who exceed expectations when it comes to sport, our local minor hockey programs and the Whitchurch-Stouffville community at large” says WSMHA President, Brian Mackenzie.  “We think this bursary is consistent with this objective.”
