The Rutter family in partnership with CurlManitoba are pleased to announce the creation of the Pat Rutter Memorial Junior Men’s Scholarship. This $1,000 scholarship will be awarded yearly to an eligible junior men’s curler in honour of Pat Rutter of Carman, Manitoba, who passed away suddenly at 55 years old on May 17, 2018.
Pat Rutter was a dedicated curling mom of three children. While she never threw a curling rock in her life, the curling world was very special to her. She supported her three children as well as all curlers who she considered a part of her curling family as they chased their curling dreams. CurlManitoba will honour Pat’s memory with this scholarship.
To be able to apply for the scholarship, you must fit the following criteria:
- Any active junior men’s curler entering or currently enrolled in post-secondary education may apply if affiliated as a junior during the year of application
- All applicants must have an average of 70%
Applications will soon be made available on the CurlManitoba website. Please note that all scholarship applications are due by May 1, 2019 at 4:30 p.m. Late applications will not be accepted.
The Pat Rutter Memorial Junior Men’s Scholarship is supported by the Curling for Life Endowment Fund. The fund was established, so we could help generate funds to sustain and build programs to grow, develop, and market the sport of curling within Manitoba. We have identified three areas to target our CFLEF yearly funds, which are scholarships, the development of curling in Manitoba, and the promotion of curling in Manitoba.
