The scholarship will be evaluated on the responses to three questions based on our pillars. For more details on our Pillars, please visit Our Pillars.
If you are unable to pay for the registration dues in advance (we recognize that reality, which is the intent of this scholarship program), we cannot guarantee you a spot within the tournament. To secure your spot in the tournament regardless of your selection, we encourage you to register for the tournament during the most applicable window that applies to you.
No, it is a merit-based scholarship that will be awarded to participants based on embodying the pillars of the organization. For more details on our pillars, please visit Our Pillars.
We understand that there are participants who will want to play even if not selected for the Matthew Campbell Memorial Scholarship. If you have the resources, we encourage you to register for the tournament in conjunction with the scholarship application. If you are awarded into the program, we will refund your registration dues. If you registered and paid in advance, and are not selected for the program, your spot is guaranteed and no action necessary. If you ended up not registering and are not selected for the program, assuming the tournament is sold out, we encourage you to register as a volunteer so you can still be part of the experience
Yes! All persons selected to the scholarship program will be required to provide 3 – 5 hours of volunteer service at the tournament per day (Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday). Volunteer schedules will be released once teams are drafted and will be worked around your teams’ schedule.
The decisions of the SPHA Scholarship Committee are final and there is no appeals process. We hope to continue offering this program in future programs and tournaments and encourage you to apply again.
Yes, all benefits received will generate a 1099-MISC (US residents) or W-8 BEN (Canada residents). Every US applicant is required to submit an IRS Form W-9 for use if they are selected and receive benefits. Please consult a tax professional for further questions.
Matthew Campbell was diagnosed with a very rare stage four metastasized Desmoplastic Small Round Cell Tumor sarcoma with a dismal prognosis at the young age of 23. Matthew’s treatment brought him to Seattle to be closer to family and he quickly joined the Greater Seattle Hockey League and was very excited to join and help with the newly formed Seattle Pride Hockey Association. He had a personal interest in helping further the organization in between intense chemo treatments. Mostly, Matthew was interested in spreading kindness with inclusivity for all, as well as his lifelong passion for the game of hockey and continuing to live a very full life and giving back to others. Matthew fought with all he had for just one more minute with those he loved, but took his last breath on April 19, 2020, at the age of 24, in the arms of his family and the love of his life. In his name and memory, we want to recognize the legacy and impact that Matthew has forever left behind.
