Funding the future; Athletics Canada announces high school scholarships!

Published: April 24, 2018

Athletics Canada understands the importance of introducing and keeping youth involved in athletics. As a result, the Athletics Canada Foundation is pleased to announce funding for two scholarships for 2018 graduating high school student-athletes.

"We look forward to continuing our efforts in supporting athletes. Often, athletes can’t afford to go to school and participate in sport. The ACF scholarship program ensures that recipients do not lose that opportunity," said Rob Guy, Athletics Canada Chief Executive Officer.

The $5,000 scholarships will be awarded to one male and one female multi-sport athlete with a passion for athletics who is graduating from high school and committed to continuing athletic and academic pursuits in Canada.



The NBIAA has two Track & Field events for Special Olympic athletes.  The events will be the shot put and the 50 m race, these events will be exhibition only.

All athletes must be identified and registered through Special Olympics New Brunswick prior to being registered with the NBIAA in order to participate in these two events.  If you have athletes who may qualify for these events, please communicate with Special Olympics New Brunswick at 455-6548 or
