“Supporting Figure Skating in Manitoba and Beyond”

The Skate Canada Manitoba Grassroots Bursary Fund was initiated in 1984 by a group of dedicated volunteers to support the training and development of elite skaters in Manitoba.  Since its inception, the bursary fund has distributed scholarships to over 400 skaters who have earned a berth to compete at Western Canadian, Canadian and International Championships.
The Skate Canada Manitoba Grassroots Bursary Fund supports skaters from the Juvenile (Canada’s entry competitive level) through to the Senior Level (skaters on their way to Canadian and world events).  Each year 25 – 30 skaters are awarded scholarships through the fund.
Annually, the fund hosts a Skate Canada Manitoba Grassroots Bursary Awards Dinner and Ice Show to recognize and honor the skaters who will receive bursaries.  As trustees of the fund, we are committed to ensuring that all bursary funds go directly to skaters and that the fund itself is not used for administrative costs.  At this time we are asking for your support in sponsoring a skater’s attendance at the dinner and/or contributing to the fund.
