2012 OHF Bursary Program
The 2012 OHF Bursary is available to all players, coaches, officials, etc. registered under the OHF umbrella who are applying to post secondary school next year.  Twenty-nine $1,000 awards are available this year!

Since its establishment in 1996, the OHF Bursary Program has distributed more than $259,000 to over 290 post secondary students across Ontario. The program was established to provide financial assistance to registered participants including players, coaches, trainers, and officials to help offset the cost of post secondary education.  Each year, the OHF awards bursaries to outstanding young people who display an incredible amount of commitment both at the arena and in the classroom. The bursary recipients are determined on the basis of academic achievements, hockey involvement and community involvement

This year, the OHF Bursary Program will provide $29,000 in financial assistance.  All students who are enrolled or plan to enroll in a Canadian post secondary institution and who are members of the OHF are eligible to receive bursary funds.  More information on the OHF Bursary Program, including eligibility requirements and applications, are available on the OHF website at www.ohf.on.ca
Application forms for OHF Bursaries are also available by contacting Natalie Ellis 226-533-9070 or [email protected]


“The OHF Bursary is a reward to students entering a post-secondary education and has given back to their hockey community. It also teaches the players that giving back to the community is beneficial in many ways. It allows young adults to give future generations incentive to keep supporting the hockey community in whatever ways they can because the OHF is willing to assist you because you assisted children with the game you love. “ Jessica Perdue – 2011 Recipient                                                                                         

“ Hockey has played a great role in my life as I have played since I was 5 years old. It was a great honour to receive the OHF bursary because it rewards those who have dedicated themselves to the sport while also balancing school and volunteering in the community.  It was nice to be recognized in this manner and was a fitting end to my minor hockey career, which has made a major impact on who I am today. I continue to play hockey with my friends in university and referee when time permits. Thanks again for awarding me with the bursary and giving others like myself this opportunity.” Elliott Leifer – 2011 Recipient
