Rick Blight Scholarship

Scholarship Value: $1,000
Awards Available: 8
Award Deadline: Jun 12, 2022

In tribute to Rick’s life, Jack.org is facilitating the Rick Blight Leadership in Action Scholarship for Athletes as a means to recognize the presence of mental wellness within athletics. Athleticism has the potential to be incredibly life promoting. It can also be competitive and prioritize physical wellness at the expense of mental and emotional well-being.

The Rick Blight Scholarship seeks to recognize athletes who have demonstrated both a dedication to leadership in their sport and ongoing investment in their personal mental wellness and/or that of their sports team or community. Actions in support of one’s personal mental wellness and/or that of their sports team or community may be demonstrated through things such as visiting a mental health professional, encouraging peers to reach out when in need, involving oneself in emotionally-sustaining community activities, supporting anti-stigma efforts, or attending community events mandated to promote mental wellness.

There are five scholarships of $1,000 and three scholarships of $500 available with funding generously provided by Canucks Alumni Association and Connor, Clark & Lunn Financial Group.


A) A leader in your personal mental wellness and/or that of your sports team, or community

B) Demonstrating a dedication to your sport

C) Currently enrolled in Grade 12 at a high school in British Columbia
