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 create a lasting legacy in the region.

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.

Building upon that vision alongside an overall commitment to academic excellence, the Canadian Hockey League will continue its Memorial Cup Legacy Scholarship in Kamloops, B.C at the 2023 Memorial Cup presented by Kia. The program will continue to provide two (2) individuals each with an academic scholarship valued at C$5,000, awarded each year for five years.

In addition to the Legacy Scholarship Program, funds raised from the progressive and in-game 50/50 will go back into the host communities to support community legacy projects.

50/50 presented by Extreme Excavating tickets can be purchased HERE starting on April 26th, 2023.

*Purchase is subject to rules and regulations and can only be purchased within the province of B.C.
