The Al Hamilton Scholarship is named after one of our great Oilers, Al Hamilton, who is a community pillar, and played on both the Oil Kings and the Oilers. He was our captain and a great defenceman in his era.
The Al Hamilton Scholarship is awarded annually to a student from the Greater Edmonton area for excellence in academics, athletics and community service. Value of this scholarship is $2000 per school year to a maximum of four (4) years equalling out to $8000.
To apply, candidates need to send in the application form as well as their most recent report card, a short, 500-word essay on why they believe they deserve the scholarship and two letters of recommendation.
