Agnes Jacks Scholarship Awards


Scholarship Value: $1,000
Awards Available: 5

A member of the Order of Canada, Agnes Jacks was the widow of Sam Jacks, who invented the sport of ringette in 1963 in North Bay, Ontario. While the sport lost Mr. Jacks' guiding hand through his untimely passing in 1975, the ringette community continued to benefit greatly from Agnes's dedicated and enthusiastic promotion of the sport both within Canada and around the world.

The Agnes Jacks Scholarship Awards program provides a number of scholarships of $1,000 each towards post-secondary education for ringette players, coaches and/or officials who demonstrate a strong commitment to the sport of ringette. Recipients receive a scholarship award certificate recognizing their achievements. Ringette Canada's Board of Directors determines the number of scholarships offered each year.

Application for an Agnes Jacks Scholarship Award may be made by:

A) Ringette players registered with one of Ringette Canada's provincial/territorial member associations,

B) NCCP-certified ringette coaches, and

C) Active on-ice ringette-certified officials.

Applicants must be enrolled full-time in a recognized post-secondary education institution for the next academic year. Applicants must meet the admission standards of the educational institution specified, which must be a university, college or other educational institution located in Canada providing courses at a post-secondary school level. Applicants must have actively participated in ringette as player, coach or on-ice official for at least five of the last seven years and must be registered in the current playing season. Successful applicants will be those who have demonstrated sustained commitment to the sport of ringette through playing, coaching, officiating and other volunteer activities.

Ringette Canada will not release scholarship funds until proof of registration as a full-time student at a Canadian university for the next academic year has been provided. Scholarship funds must be applied to the academic year for which the scholarship was awarded. Ringette Canada is unable to grant requests to defer scholarships from one academic year to the next.
