Applications must be fully completed and submitted by March 11, 2016.

Minnesota Hockey announced today its scholarship opportunities for 2016. College scholarship awards of $1,000 will be provided to eligible, registered members of Minnesota 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 40 years.

The criteria for the Minnesota Hockey scholarships, including the Wes Barrette Scholarship, are listed below. To apply, download this application and send it to Minnesota Hockey no later than Friday, March 11th, 2016.
