WHL AWARDS 275 SCHOLARSHIPS TO GRADS

CALGARY, AB – Western Hockey League Commissioner Ron Robison announced today that a total of 275 WHL graduate players have been awarded WHL Scholarships for the 2010-11 academic year.

The WHL Scholarship recipients are enrolled as full-time students in 70 different post-secondary institutions throughout North America.

This season 161 of the 275 WHL Scholarship recipients are furthering their education while playing elite hockey in the Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) Association.  In Western Canada 102 of these student athletes are playing in the Canada West University Conference and have combined their WHL Scholarship with additional financial assistance from their University to receive Western Canada’s Premier Hockey Scholarship.
 
The University of Saskatchewan (Saskatoon) leads the way with 29 WHL graduates enrolled in full time studies while 26 former WHL players are registered at the University of Alberta (Edmonton).  The University of Calgary and Manitoba (Winnipeg) have 18 WHL graduates attending full time classes, the University of British Columbia in Vancouver and the University of Lethbridge have 13 while the University of Regina has 12 WHL graduates enrolled in full time studies.

The WHL Scholarship recipients include 217 graduates attending a Canadian University, 152 of which are attending University in Western Canada.  65 WHL graduates are enrolled at Universities in Eastern Canada with 59 currently playing hockey in the Ontario and Atlantic Conferences of the CIS.  Another 48 WHL graduates are enrolled at a Canadian College or other post-secondary institution with 11 playing hockey in the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) and 10 are attending other post-secondary institutions throughout North America.  

The WHL Scholarship is solely funded by the member Clubs of the WHL.  This season WHL Clubs will contribute $1.5 million to graduates utilizing the WHL Scholarship.

“The WHL and our Member Clubs take great pride in serving as the leading provider of hockey scholarships in Western Canada”, commented WHL Commissioner Ron Robison. “We are fully committed to continue providing our current and graduate players with the most comprehensive education and scholarship program available in North America today.”

All players who play in the WHL are eligible to receive the WHL scholarship.  For every season a player plays in the WHL, they receive a full year guaranteed WHL Scholarship, including tuition, textbooks and compulsory fees, to a post-secondary institution of their choice.  In addition, over 100 current WHL players receive financial assistance to enroll in post secondary classes while playing in the WHL.  The WHL and Athabasca University have partnered to offer, through online and other distance education vehicles, fully accredited university courses to any WHL player interested in further pursuing post-secondary studies while playing in the WHL.

The WHL continues to be the leading provider of Hockey Scholarships in Western Canada.  Since 1993, the Western Hockey League has awarded more than 4,000 Scholarships representing a contribution of more than $12 million.

The WHL gratefully acknowledges the support of Husky Energy as an Associate Partner of the WHL Education Program.
