The ICE Program provides academic scholarships for Chicago area students first grade and up seeking to receive a tuition-based education. To be eligible for an academic scholarship, the student must be actively playing ice hockey, demonstrate financial need, maintain a 3.0 grade point average (on the standard 4.0 scale), possess a satisfactory disciplinary record, and demonstrate a strong personal character. Each scholarship recipient must execute an undertaking, which will include a commitment to work or perform community service for a minimum of forty (40) hours during the summer prior to each and every scholarship year. Parents or guardians are responsible for verifying scholarship recipient performance and authorizing the release of relevant academic and behavioral records to the ICE Program Scholarship Committee.
