The Chicago Blackhawk Alumni Association (CBAA) distributes college scholarships annually to the three most deserving high school hockey players. Awards are determined from a candidate’s level of community service, volunteerism, good citizenship, academic performance as well as the hockey talent of the individual. Recipients will receive an annual $7,500.00 scholarship over four years for a total of $30,000.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the timeline has changed; for 2021, scholarship applications are available for download beginning January 15 on the Blackhawk Alumni website. Fully completed applications including letter of recommendations, original transcripts, and scholar essays are due no later than March 15, 2021. Once all the forms are gathered, a selection committee from the Blackhawk Alumni Association (CBAA) will review all candidates and then select the three recipients.
We encourage all senior high school players to take the time to submit their applications. We also encourage all coaches, managers, and team/league presidents to promote and support this effort.
Please take a minute to visit the Blackhawk Alumni website to read more about the scholarship, view 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.
