Post-Secondary Scholarships available for athletes and coaches
Coaching Manitoba Bursary – MARCH 26th Deadline
Coaching Manitoba on an annual basis presents bursaries to four students who have demonstrated a commitment to coaching in Manitoba. Our goal is to encourage students to continue coaching while attending a post-secondary institution.
Students who are, or will be, enrolled in the upcoming school term in post-secondary education and currently coaching for a school, club or community center are invited to submit an application. One male and one female student coach from the Winnipeg region and one male and one female student from rural Manitoba will be selected to each receive a bursary of $500 to be used towards their tuition.
Manitoba Foundation for Sports Scholarships – APRIL 23rd Deadline
The Manitoba Foundation for Sports scholarship program administrated by Sport Manitoba was established to support young athletes of Sport Manitoba partners, who continue to participate in amateur sport while pursuing a post secondary education on a full time basis.
The program’s emphasis is placed on athletes who have competed at the provincial level or higher during 2009, and who have maintained a high level of academic standing, while showing a commitment to amateur sport through their involvement in coaching, officiating and volunteer activities. The number of scholarships awarded annually will vary, based on the number of applicants and the funds available for distribution. Preference will be given to athletes attending university or college in Manitoba and enrolled in a related field, pursing a career in sport.
Scholarships are awarded to graduating high school students entering a post secondary institution and to students in their second or subsequent year in a post secondary institution. The top applicant in each category will be awarded the Manitoba Foundation for Sports Milt Stegall Scholarship.
Applications for both the Coaching Manitoba Bursary and the Manitoba Foundation for Sports Scholarships are available at http://www.sportmanitoba.ca/scholarships.php .
