The Blackhawk Alumni Association (BHAA) distributes college scholarships annually to the three most deserving Illinois high school hockey players. Awards are determined from a candidate’s level of community service, volunteerism, good citizenship, academic performance as well as the hockey talent of the individual. Recipients will receive an annual $7,500.00 scholarship over four years for a total of $30,000.
Starting December 1st of each year, scholarship applications are available for online entry at www.blackhawkalumni.com. Fully completed applications including letter of recommendations, and scholar essays are due no later than February 1st of each year. Original school transcripts maybe requested. A selection committee from the Blackhawk Alumni Association (BHAA) will review all of the candidates and then select the three recipients.

This is the online application process for the Blackhawk Alumni Scholarship. Applicants must complete this online process in order to be considered for the Blackhawk Alumni Scholarship.
Applicants will have the ability to enter the information and go back and edit that information. In order to do so, the applicant must go through the online application process completely and click "Complete Registration" on the final page. At that point the information entered will be saved. You will be able to go back and edit that information. The uploads for headshot, essays, letters of recommendation, and any additional documents can be uploaded at a later date than when the applicant first submits their entry. However, uploads and all info must be completed by Feb. 1.
Each page of the online application process provides a "continue button" at the bottom of the page. You cannot continue to the next page until the required information is entered. The continue button at the bottom of each page is not a "save button," and you must go through the entire process and click the "Complete Registration" on the last page for your entries to be saved. Once submitted you will receive an email notification that your entry was submitted.
The information entered won't be reviewed until the application process closes. So any information you enter and then edit (up until February 1 at 11:59 PM) won't be reviewed for consideration until the entire application process is closed.
