Phil Weinberg Game Ready Scholarship
Since the inception of the Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation, Phil Weinberg served as an officer and trustee of the organization. He was a trusted advisor, an enduring supporter, and tireless advocate of the organization and the thousands of under-resourced youth the foundation annually serves. To honor his memory, the Phil Weinberg Game Ready Scholarship Fund was established.
The Phil Weinberg Game Ready Scholarship provides Snider Hockey students with a $1,500 annual scholarship to help defray the cost of books, tuition, fees, and other expenses related to attending college, trade school, or other approved postsecondary education program. This award is given annually to every eligible Snider Hockey student throughout their postsecondary career. During the 2021-22 academic year, 78 students have participated in the Phil Weinberg Game Ready Scholarship program and $91,500 in funding has been distributed to students. The Phil Weinberg Game Ready Scholarship supplements the Goals & Assists Scholarship and the Snider Hockey Overtime Scholarship, also available to eligible students in their postsecondary education careers. Combined, these scholarship programs provide our students with a head start in life – allowing them to graduate from college free of debt.
All dollars contributed in Phil’s honor will be matched 2:1 by the Ed Snider Youth Hockey Support Organization.
