The Bell Warriors Jim Wagdin Scholarship Program offers two $1,000 scholarships to ex-Warriors who are pursuing post secondary education. Participation in a post secondary football program is not a pre-requisite. There are however, three selection criteria – Academics, Warrior Experience, and Community Involvement. Applications must be submitted by August 1 and must include an original letter describing both the applicant’s experiences with the Warriors as well as his/her volunteer involvement with the community, a transcript of the applicant’s previous year’s marks, a notice of acceptance from the selected university/college (for first year students) OR a note from the school indicating the applicant’s return for a succeeding year, as well as any letters of reference.
An independent committee, as chosen by the Club executive, makes the selections. Please send application details to email@example.com. Jim Wagdin was a coach with the Bell Warriors for 24 years and retired from the club as President in 2012. His commitment to the Warriors and his community reflect the values the Warriors want to reinforce in our players with this post-secondary scholarship program. Since the Warriors introduced the program, $32,000 has been given to ex-Warrior players to support their scholastic goals and aspirations. An applicant will only be eligible for selection for the scholarship a maximum of two times. The only exceptions will be:
(i) The independent committee deems an application does not meet the three selection criteria and/or
(ii) An insufficient number of eligible applications are received prior to the deadline.
