Dear Illinois High School Hockey Senior:
We wanted to make you aware of a unique opportunity for all graduating Illinois High School Players (Seniors). This is an annual scholarship which is provided by the Chicago Blackhawk Alumni Association to three Illinois High School hockey players. The Alumni Association was formed in 1987 by former Blackhawk players (Stan Mikita, Keith Magnuson, Cliff Koroll, and many others) with one of the main goals being giving back to Illinois youth hockey, high School in particular. As a part of this charge, the Alumni awards three annual $5,000 scholarships (for 4 years) — THIS NEXT YEAR THE AMOUNT HAS BEEN RAISED TO $7,500.00 (for four years – totaling $$28,000.00) to “the most deserving high school hockey players” in the state. The selection process is determined not by talent, but by the following five criteria:
- Financial Need
- Community Service
- Applicant Essay
Please take a minute to visit the Blackhawk Alumni website to read more about the scholarship, see a list of past recipients and to download the application. If you have any questions regarding the scholarship, please direct them to Tom Dillon at firstname.lastname@example.org. Don’t Miss Out On This Great Opportunity!
Thanks and good luck the remainder of the season!
