2022 AMBA MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIPS
AMBA is proud to offer two $500 Scholarships, awarded to two individuals who have contributed to the growth of AMBA in the community.
The Sean Smith Memorial Scholarship is dedicated to Sean’s love of sports, joy of playing, his team spirit and sportsmanship. It is awarded to a current or past AMBA player.
The Colin McKenna Memorial Scholarship commemorates Colin’s generous spirit and his love of, and dedication to basketball within our community. It is awarded to a current or past AMBA volunteer, coach, or referee.
- Anyone who has been involved with AMBA (past or present) is eligible for an AMBA Scholarship (coaches, volunteers, players, referees, committee/board members).
- Applicants must be currently enrolled in a full-time post-secondary program, and will need to complete a short essay.
- A Scholarship Committee will review the applicants’ candidacy and essays, choosing one winner for each scholarship. (All names and specific identifying information are removed from the essays before review.)
- Winners must show current proof of enrollment in a post-secondary program before the Scholarship is dispersed.
- Previous Scholarship winners are ineligible for further AMBA Scholarships. Exception: 2021 Scholarship winners are eligible to be awarded one more AMBA scholarship, as 2021 was a Bonus year.
