Memorial Cup Legacy Scholarship Program


The Canadian Hockey League continues to put forth efforts in each one of our Memorial Cup host communities, striving with an aspiration of creating a lasting legacy in the region.

Building upon that vision alongside an overall commitment to academic excellence, the Canadian Hockey League unveiled the inaugural Memorial Cup Legacy Scholarship program that will provide two (2) individuals each with an academic scholarship valued at C$5,000, awarded each year for a five-year period.

Beginning with the 2022 Memorial Cup presented by Kia in Saint John, the Memorial Cup Legacy Scholarship will continue to be implemented on an annual basis by each Memorial Cup Host Organizing Committee.

The 2022 Memorial Cup presented by Kia was held in Saint John, New Brunswick with a “One for All” theme for the 2022 Memorial Cup, which prioritized a vision that was inclusive and engaging for all members of the community.  The importance of education was highlighted during the Memorial Cup and the Canadian Hockey League along with the Host Organizing Committee have established a legacy fund to include two scholarships being awarded each year for a five-year period.
