Ian Shaw Memorial Scholarship
The Ian Shaw Memorial Scholarship was launched in 2017 to recognize and reward a young woman’s commitment to hockey, community and education.
Named in memory of long-time board member and referee-in-chief Ian Shaw, this annual scholarship recognizes a graduating member of the TLGHA who has distinguished herself through her commitment as a player, an official and a member of her community. The scholarship, in the amount of $500, will be directed to offset the costs of post-secondary education.
Information on Ian Shaw and the Scholarship is attached along with the application form. Applications must be submitted before April 26, 2019. A note to our adult officials, please encourage any Grade 12 Wildcat official to apply provided they meet the requirements. And to the younger ones, this is something you can aim for when you are in your graduation year.
The successful applicant has the following:
- A combined 4 years as a registered player and/or official (referee or timekeeper) within the Toronto Leaside Wildcats (Note: a season in which an applicant plays and officiates counts as two years toward eligibility)
- Is an official (referee or timekeeper) with the Wildcats in the application season
