The Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation annually invests a portion of our grantmaking into the growth and support of amateur hockey in Columbus. Each season, a portion of this investment is specifically earmarked for the purpose of continuing an annual educational scholarship for a graduating high school senior who wishes to further his/her education beyond high school. These students have excelled in their commitment to hockey, in their leadership, and in their academic and extracurricular activities at their respective school. This scholarship is not based on performance as a hockey player. It is based on character and overall achievements during high school.

  • be an Ohio high school senior demonstrating readiness to attend a two- or four-year college or university upon graduation
