Travis Stryker Memorial Scholarship

Dallas Junior Hockey Association (DJHA) accepts donations for the Travis Stryker Memorial Scholarship that was established in 2014. When funds are available 100% of these donations are used to offset the cost of season fees. 

DJHA is making a limited number of scholarship opportunities available to players who might otherwise not be able to participate in travel hockey.  Selection of players for this financial assistance is based on financial need, academic performance in school and involvement in school and community activities.  All information required must be provided before any application will be considered. Please see Scholarship Guidelines below.

The online application must be filled out completely and submitted electronically on or before the specified deadline.
