Gary Dineen Memorial Scholarship Fund


Enfield, CT – March 6, 2017 - Mass/Conn United is now accepting Gary Dineen Memorial Scholarship Fund applications for the 2017-'18 season.

Gary Dineen Legacy understands that youth hockey requires a significant financial and time commitment from families, many of whom do not have the means to participate at the highest level of amateur hockey in New England. For those families that require additional financial assistance, Mass/Conn United offers a “needs based” scholarship in the form of the Gary Dineen Legacy-sponsored Gary Dineen Memorial Scholarship Fund. Applications are submitted to and reviewed by an independent committee. Awarded funds are applied against player participation fees up to a maximum of 50% of the season’s total tuition. Criteria considered as part of the review process includes financial need, academic record, community service and the player’s positive contributions to his/her team and the organization.

For the 2016-'17 season, the Gary Dineen Memorial Scholarship Fund provided nearly $15,000 in financial assistance.
