  • WAHA Scholarship
The Wisconsin Amateur Hockey Association/Wisconsin Hockey Hall of Fame has awarded over $100,000 of scholarships since the program began in 1992. The program started with one scholarship, moved to two in 1993, to four in 1996, and to five in 2002.

To be eligible, candidates need to be a high school hockey sectional. They must then submit an application indicating why they feel that they deserve the scholarship, including high school and community activities. Letters of recommendations must be submitted from the high school principal, teachers, or coaches.

Winners are selected by a committee based on their essay and letters of recommendation, with heavy emphasis put on school and community service activities. Past and current winners are some of the most outstanding young adults in Wisconsin.
