Scholarships for Snider Hockey Alumni

Phil Weinberg Game Ready Scholarship

Since the inception of Ed Snider Youth Hockey & Education, 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 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 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 & Education Support Organization.

Interested students should contact our Coordinator of Postsecondary Education, Maria Marx, at MMarx@SniderHockey.org or by calling 215-952-5271 to learn more about eligibility requirements and how to apply for the Phil Weinberg Game Ready Scholarship.
