NORTH YORK STORM SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

The North York Storm Scholarship Program recognizes and rewards commitment to hockey, community and education. The program provides financial assistance to members of the Storm Family for their post secondary education.

Every year the fund rewards outstanding individuals who excel in the arena and the classroom and exhibit qualities of leadership and commitment. The recipients are determined based on their hockey and academic achievements as well as community involvement. All awards will be given out at our year end banquet and the applicants will be judged by a panel of selected volunteers in an unbiased position.  The application must be submitted no later than March 20th, 2018.  The Scholarship Award will be used in the following enrollment year once accepted by the recognized school of your choice.

In addition to the General Scholarship available (Tier 1), and given the unique relationship between the North York Storm organization and the York University Women's Hockey Program and School, those Players that apply for the Scholarship Program and choose to attend York University (and are accepted) will receive two times the Scholarship (Tier 2). Those players who apply and are accepted to York University AND are rostered on the York University Women's Hockey Team will receive three times (Tier 3) the amount of the Scholarship award.

Good Luck to all Applicants.

Regards,
North York Storm
