Dan Snyder Scholarship
Submitted By Brett Bickerton on Tuesday, April 3, 2018
The Dan Snyder Memorial Scholarship is now accepting applications for the 2018 scholarships. As in past years there will be one recipient from each of the following three categories: “Elmira Sugar Kings”, “Woolwich Minor Hockey” and “Woolwich Community at Large”. 

In October 2003, local hockey hero Dan Snyder succumbed to injuries as a result of a car crash in Atlanta, Georgia. In Dan’s memory, funds were raised by the NHLPA and other donors and in 2004 the Dan Snyder Memorial Scholarship Fund was born.

We are currently soliciting nominations of candidates who are residents of the Township of Woolwich who display Dan’s characteristics of determination, desire, good sportsmanship and community involvement. All successful candidates must be enrolled in a qualified accredited post secondary institution and funds are deposited directly to the school the recipient will attend that fall, under the direction of the K-W Community Foundation.

Applications can be found at www.37risingstars.com and follow the links under “Scholarship”. Applications will be accepted until June 15, 2018 and can be mailed to or dropped off at the following address:

RBC Royal Bank

202 – 95 King Street S

Waterloo ON N2J 5A2

ATTN: Susan Van Every

Additional information can be obtained by contacting Susan Van Every at 519-747-6937.
