Minnesota Hockey has announced its scholarship opportunities for 2018. College scholarship awards of $1,000 will be provided to eligible, registered members of Minnesota Hockey, participants in Minnesota high school hockey and Minnesota Disabled Hockey will offer a similar scholarship for its athletes to use towards personal growth and development.
Minnesota Hockey has provided scholarship opportunities to graduating seniors for over a decade with intent of assisting its members in pursuing post-secondary education. This emphasis on personal and development was expanded to disabled hockey in 2014 with the addition of a disabled hockey scholarship, which can also be used therapy services, rehabilitation services or specialized equipment.
The Metro Hockey League, which oversees Junior Gold hockey in the metro area, also offers a scholarship called the Wes Barrette Scholarship. The scholarship is provided each season in honor of the legendary Junior Gold coach Wes Barrette. Barrette played a key role in the development of the Junior Gold level and founded the team Wessy’s Boys which has been a fixture in the St. Paul area for over 20 years.
The criteria and application information for the Minnesota Hockey scholarships can be found here.
