Get your scholarships here!

When I moved from Detroit to Pittsburgh going on five years ago, one of the first things I did was discover that the Penguins are awesome. Way more awesome than the Red Wings. Yeah, I said it.  

But I liked the Penguins even more when I found out that they don’t just rock at playing hockey—they are also in the habit of awarding scholarships to Pittsburgh-area high school seniors.

 Penguins Alumni Association Scholarship

$2,000 scholarship for a Western Pennsylvania high school senior who has demonstrated outstanding academic achievement, good citizenship, school and community involvement, and who has shown an intense love for the game of hockey personified by on-ice hustle, achievement beyond his or her talent level, leadership, sportsmanship and teamwork.
