The For the Love of Curling Scholarship Program is intended for young Canadian athletes who excel in curling, maintain a good level of academic standing, and demonstrate a strong commitment to their community through leadership volunteer activities. The purpose is to give talented junior curling student athletes the support to pursue their curling and academic dreams.
It’s thanks to the generous support of the curling community across Canada, including the Governor General’s Curling Club Members, that we can play this collective role in supporting the next generation of passionate, talented, and caring curlers.
Eleven scholarships, one of which is presented by the Governor General’s Curling Club, and each valued at $2,500, will be awarded to student curling athletes who have been accepted into a post-secondary education program.
