2020 Softball Canada Umpire Scholarship – Ed Bitz Scholarship (COVID19 – UPDATED)
Two $1,000.00 scholarships will be awarded.
The deadline for applicants to submit their form to Softball Canada is April 30, 2020.
Please note: Only successful candidates will be contacted by Softball Canada.
REMINDER: APRIL 30 DEADLINE
Hopefully everyone is remaining healthy during these stressful times. I just wanted to send out a reminder of the Ed Bitz Scholarship. At this time, we are flexible in the documentation and scanned/emailed applications are fine. We will not need the original school transcripts as we understand this is not going to be possible for some. If selected, we will need the originals at a future date. The applicants must be registered for the 2019/20 season as we remain hopeful that there will be a season, potentially a shorter season.
If you have any questions, feel free to send me an email.
