John H. McConnell Scholarship Fund

The Blue Jackets players in partnership with the Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation established the John H. McConnell Scholarship Fund in 2008 to honor the life and legacy of the team’s late founder John H. McConnell. The fund was created to give fans of all ages the opportunity to honor Mr. Mac and his deep-rooted belief in the importance of giving back to the community. Each year, one local high school senior, who personifies his character and leadership, will be awarded a $10,000 scholarship

Mr. Mac was an honorable man who believed in the golden rule, ‘Treat others as you want to be treated.’ An enormously successful businessman, his accomplishments in that arena were surpassed only by his endeavors that improved the lives of others. Through his humanitarian and community efforts, Mr. McConnell became widely recognized as one of Columbus’ most generous citizens.


To Apply for the John H. McConnell Scholarship

Unlike traditional scholarships that are based on academic performance, this fund is intended to reward local high school seniors who demonstrate hard work, perseverance, leadership and community involvement. Mr. McConnell’s legacy reflects a life guided by the above characteristics.

High school seniors who personify the very character and leadership of the late John H. McConnell are able complete and submit an application for consideration by February 27, 2015 this year. Scholarship winners are selected annually by the Foundation’s Board of Directors and announced in the spring.

One $10,000 scholarship will be awarded annually. Click the button below to apply for the 2014-15 John H. McConnell Scholarship.
