The Cara Brown Scholarship provides two (2) annual scholarships of $1,000 each towards post-secondary education for competitive ringette players at the AA level (or at the highest level offered in the applicant's community) who are entering a Canadian university on a full-time basis for the first time and have demonstrated academic excellence combined with a strong commitment to the sport of ringette. Funding for the Cara Brown Ringette Scholarship is provided by Brown Economic Consulting Inc., which supports many community events and courses through sponsorship and donations.
Application for a Cara Brown Ringette Scholarship may be made by ringette players who:
A) are registered with one of Ringette Canada's provincial/territorial member associations and are actively playing ringette at the AA level (or at the highest level offered in the applicant's community) during the current playing season,
B) will be entering a Canadian university on a full-time basis for the first time in the next academic year,
C) have achieved academic excellence (minimum B average or equivalent), and
D) have demonstrated a strong commitment to the sport of ringette.
Applicants must be planning to attend a university located in Canada and be able to meet the institution's admission standards.
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, and confirmation of a B average (as defined by the applicant's institution) is provided.
