About the Scholarship...

In 2010, Terry Gallagher had a vision of establishing a Scholarship program, within OMGHA, that would provide scholarship opportunities, for post secondary education, to current or former OMGHA athletes.


On January 27, 2011 Terry lost his valiantly fought, three year battle with colon cancer.  Although Terry never witnessed a scholarship being awarded, his vision for this scholarship program lives on through the work of his wife, Mimi, their children, Meghan, Tommy, and Rose, and through the support of the OMGHA Board Members and Members of our community.


Over the past eight years, The Terry Gallagher Memorial Scholarship program has recognized one male and one female current or former OMGHA skater for his/her commitment to his/her education; commitment to community service & leadership skills. In 2017, with the financial support of OMGHA, we increased the scholarship offerings to a total of 4 scholarships. Up to 4 of the top applicants, out of the combined male/female applicant pool, will receive a $1000 scholarship to an accredited College, University or Vocational school. Eligible applicants must have participated in the OMGHA Hockey program for a minimum of three years; maintain a grade point average of 3.0 or greater; demonstrate leadership abilities and possess a high level of commitment to community service.


Applications must be submitted on or before April 25, 2021 at 11:59pm to be eligible for consideration for the 2021 Scholarship Awards. All applications will be reviewed by the Terry Gallagher Memorial Scholarship committee and scholarships will be awarded at the 2021 Scholastic Achievement program.
