Brian Maxwell Memorial Scholarship award expansion

Since the founding of the Brian Maxwell Memorial Scholarship in 2007, the number of applicants has increased every year. In response to the success of this award, OFSAA is pleased to announce that the award will be expanded thanks to a very generous donation by Jennifer Maxwell, the widow of the late Brian Maxwell.

This scholarship is awarded to middle-distance runners with impressive OFSAA results, high academic achievement, extra-curricular participation and significant community involvement.

There will now be first, second and third place scholarships awarded to each a male and female annually as follows:

  • First place:   $8,000
  • Second place:  $4,000
  • Third place: $2,000

This expanded program will commence with the 2015 – 2016 school year and allows a greater opportunity for high school middle distance runners to benefit from this prestigious award. In addition to providing funding and recognition to students entering a Canadian post-secondary educational institutions, it is a valuable credential on their resume.
