The Capital Area Minor Football Association awards bursaries to students graduating from Capital Area High Schools, for the purposes of assisting their education beyond the High School level.  

As much as $1,000 will be awarded at the end of every school year. This amount may be given to one student or may be divided up among as many as four students. Students graduating from any Capital Area high school are eligible to apply. 

Applicants must have participated in an organized tackle football program, in any capacity (as a player, official, coach, manager, etc.), for a minimum of three years. To be eligible for these bursaries, applicants must be enrolling in a post-secondary educational institution school in the autumn following graduation from high school. It is not required that applicants plan to play football or be involved in a football program at that institution. 

Applicants should apply in writing outlining their:  

- Academic standing (transcript of marks)

- Athletic background

- Community involvement

- Financial need

- Plans for future education  

The merits of each application will be judged on the basis of the above criteria. Letters of application should also include the names, addresses and phone numbers of three references, with at least one reference letter included. (Relatives of the applicant will not be considered suitable references).  

Applications must be postmarked no later than May 15 and mailed to:
