The 2019 Disabled Hockey Scholarship was awarded in April at Minnesota Hockey's Annual Meeting. 2020 applications will be posted in January.
Each year Minnesota Disabled Hockey offers a grant award to eligible, registered members of Minnesota Hockey. The grant can be used at any post high school institution (i.e. college, transition program, etc.) or to enhance a player's personal growth and development, such as therapy services, rehabilitation services or specialized equipment. It will be a one-time award that will not need to be repaid. This grant does NOT cover transportation to hockey events, miscellaneous expenses at hockey events or on/off time.
To be eligible for the Minnesota Disabled Hockey grant the applicant must be a resident of Minnesota, properly registered with and participating on a Disabled Hockey program of an affiliate association of Minnesota Hockey.
