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 2008, 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.

In recognition of the Winnipeg Blue Bomber receiver’s contributions to
the community, The Province of Manitoba, Sport Manitoba and the
Manitoba Foundation for Sports will provide a scholarship of $1,000 to
a graduating high school student entering a post secondary institution
and $2,000 to a student in their second or subsequent year in a post
secondary institution in the name of Stegall, who is the Canadian
Football League’s all-time leader for touchdowns.

Other scholarship amounts will be dependent on annual funds available for distribution.

Application deadline is April 17, 2009.
