Scholarship Winners Announced

CurlManitoba has announced five Scholarship winners for the 2012-13 season. Four $1,500 CurlManitoba scholarships have been awarded under the revamped Curling for Life Endowment Fund Scholarship Program. In addition, the annual Edna Moffat Spirit of Youth Scholarship has also been awarded. The four CurlManitoba scholarship recipients for the 2012-13 season are Kyle Doering, East St. Paul; Jordan Smith, Warren; and Jennifer Curle and Hayley Surovy, both of Minnedosa.

Surovy will be attending Brandon University (Arts-Education) while the other three scholarship recipients will attend University of Manitoba in the fall. Curle has been accepted into the University 1 program with plans in the medical rehabilitation field. Smith will be studying Engineering and Doering is seeking a business degree.

The four $1,500 CurlManitoba Scholarships represent the final funding from the former Manitoba Curling Foundation which has been deactivated and replaced by the Curling For Life Endowment Fund. The scholarships program will be one of the future funding priorities for the Endowment Fund.

The Curling For Life Endowment Fund currently sits at nearly $200,000 with a long-term goal of $1,000,000. Interest from the fund will be allocated annually to three priority areas: scholarships, development programs, and promotion of the sport of curling.

The fund is managed on behalf of CurlManitoba by the Winnipeg Foundation. Contributions to the Curling for Life Endowment Fund can be made through the Winnipeg Foundation website or by cheque to:

This year’s recipient of The Edna Moffat Spirit of Youth Scholarship, Allyson Jubinvill – Gilbert Plains, is the 18th recipient since it was established after Edna Moffat passed away in 1995. The $1,000 scholarship is available to any junior woman curler in Manitoba. It is funded through a trust fund established by the family of the former Manitoba Ladies Curling Association Past President and Honourary Life Member. Jubinvill will be attending the University of Manitoba seeking a Science degree with long-term plans in medicine.
