Ian Shaw Memorial Scholarship

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.
