Sport Manitoba and Coaching Manitoba has two funding opportunities coming in the next few months targeted to post-secondary athletes and new coaches.  See the details at...


Manitoba Foundation for Sports

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

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.

Application deadline is April 17, 2009.
