Uxbridge, ON – The Golf Ontario Scholarship program exists with the support of our corporate partners and sponsors, providing financial assistance to deserving student golfers since 1994. This support allows Golf Ontario to award multiple scholarships annually to support student golfers pursuing post-secondary education. Golf Ontario is proud to announce the 2022 scholarship recipients.
In 2016, Golf Ontario celebrated a milestone as the association surpassed $500,000 in scholarship funds awarded since the program’s establishment. Six years later, in 2022, $679,500 in total has now been awarded to hundreds of recipients.
Golf Ontario has developed special scholarship awards to honour the memory of Ken McKenzie, Christine Fisher, Craig Revell, and Helena Harbridge, amazing people who have contributed a great deal to the game of golf in Ontario. In conjunction with the McKenzie, Fisher, Revell, and Harbridge families, Golf Ontario will present these special awards to deserving recipients who demonstrate the passion and dedication to the game that was ever so present in Ken, Christine, Craig, and Helena. Read more about these awards here.
Mimi Braiter, a recipient of the Helena Harbridge award, exemplifies what the recognition stands for. A star on the course and future Bachelor of Arts Law student, she is also highly engaged in the local community. Braiter runs A Ripple Effect, an organization that pairs volunteer youth with children having difficulty in their lives due to personal or family illness. In recognition of her work, she was invited to have a one-on-one meeting with Prime Minister Trudeau, who recognized her leadership, collaboration, and innovation and her impact on the community.
For Braiter, her interest in helping others guided her decision to choose Carleton and her program. “I hope to become later a family lawyer to help families and kids have the best possible outcome from a difficult situation.” Braiter added, “A Golf Ontario Scholarship will assist me with the costs associated with my academic studies and will allow me to continue to grow my love of golf as I move forward in my golf career.”
Peter Blazevic of Mississauga has been awarded the Craig Revell scholarship for 2022. This annual Scholarship in Craig’s name represents that Peter achieved significant success on the golf course and in all areas of his life. Blazevic makes for a perfect recipient of Revell’s scholarship, as he describes golf as “…more than just a game. It embodies character and life lessons.” Blazevic added, “Golf has a way of reminding us that not everything will go as planned. It will always challenge us mentally and physically. And it will often offer opportunities to better oneself both on and off the course. I have gained so many life lessons and experiences while playing the game. I am so thankful for this. It has taught me the value of hard work and the appreciation to accept mistakes and imperfections along the journey.”
Blazevic, a three-time Team Ontario member, will attend the University of Wisconsin-Parkside this fall to study Sports Management. This young, ambitious golfer hopes to “continue to develop my game in my post-secondary journey, and I look forward to achieving my academic and athletic goals.”
