Financial Aid & Scholarship Program

With the assistance of Canadian Tires Jumpstart Charity, Black Girl Hockey Canada has the ability to provide young BIPOC women with the funding needed to support their athletic careers no matter their age or level of play through a need-based financial aid program as well as an application-based scholarship program for high achieving student athletes that aspire to pursue their hockey careers into post-secondary education.

Scholarship Awards

Scholarships are offered on an annual basis for those who fulfill the scholarship criteria. These scholarships are designed to assist and encourage Black women to pursue their interest in hockey, a sport where they are often underrepresented at the highest levels. These scholarships will be disbursed once a year and are available to players all over Canada, as well as internationally. The following scholarships should be applied to the applicant’s seasonal cost required by their registered club or school and/or equipment.
