Each year, minor hockey associations across the OMHA support numerous charities and charitable foundations. Hundreds of thousands of dollars are generated and many causes and programs benefit from this support.

In 2000 the Minor Hockey Foundation Ontario (MHF) was created to support minor hockey players in the

Province of Ontario. The Foundation assists players seeking post-secondary education, players who require

financial assistance in order to play minor hockey, and the Let’s Learn Hockey Program.

This document will focus on the Wally Scott Bursary. The Wally Scott Bursary is given in recognition of

outstanding commitment to community service, athletics, and academics. This bursary reflects the

achievements of a young hockey player who is committed to his or her community, athletic ability, and

academic achievement. Each approved recipient may receive between $1,000 and $2,500 towards his or her

post-secondary education. Bursary amounts are subject to change depending on available funds. There will

be a maximum of two bursary winners awarded per year. Bursaries will be issued to the applicant’s postsecondary institution.


The MHF Executive Board reviews all applications and a member of the Board will contact the applicant to

confirm whether their request has been received. All applicants must adhere to the following guidelines:

1. All requests can only be made for players aged up to twenty years and must have been a registered player

in the Ontario Minor Hockey Association for a minimum of five years.

2. A player attending a post-secondary institution during the upcoming year.

3. Maintain a high standard of academic excellence.

4. Active in their local community programs (any community sport or social program).
