In September of 2004, the Flying ‘M’ Athletic Club assembled a committee to develop the criteria and selection process for the new George Tanner Scholarship. In May 2017, Flying ‘M’s head coach passed away. George left us a legacy of sport, knowledge, dedication, commitment and laughter.
The Scholarship is distributed through the Winnipeg Foundation directly to the educational institution the recipient is attending. This $600.00 scholarship is awarded annually.
The goal of the Scholarship is to alleviate some of the financial stress of student athletes who wish to continue their track and field training while attending a post secondary institution.
Who can apply:
Any full-time post secondary student with a minimum GPA of 2.0 competing in Track and Field in Manitoba who is a current member in good standing of Athletics Manitoba.
**Preference will be given to current members in good standing of the Flying ‘M’ Athletic Club.
**An athlete can receive the scholarship a maximum of 2 times in their career.
Please forward your completed application form and your application letter by November 15,
2023 to: George Tanner Memorial Scholarship Selection Committee, firstname.lastname@example.org.
