Tangerine is a proud supporter of basketball across Canada and supports Canada Basketball, Basketball BC and Basketball Alberta. This scholarship is a local initiative created by the Tangerine Vancouver Café in conjunction with our National BrightWayForward program of giving.

Each year, scholarships of $1000 each will be awarded to two graduating seniors (1 male/1 female). These scholarships are designed to facilitate access, growth, development alongside a healthy love for the sport. Applicants and nominees should represent individuals whom through this support can better themselves through teamwork, skills building, and commitment to the sport. Award recipients will be selected from a pool of nominees put forward by Basketball BC. Should an individual like to apply, please connect through your local coaching team for support as self-determination and the drive to excel will be highly regarded during the consideration process.

Ed Terris Memorial ScholarshiP

Ed Terris was an outstanding teacher and coach.  He taught for many years at North Delta Secondary School and then moved into Administration at what was then Sands Junior Secondary School as its first Vice-Principal.  Ed then worked in the Abbotsford School District as a Principal until his retirement.

The Ed Terris Memorial Scholarships have been developed mostly through the hard work of many of Ed's former basketball players at North Delta Secondary School. Ed was a very successful coach for many years and two of his teams were B.C. Junior Basketball Champions in the early 1970's.

There has also been a great contribution from Ed's former coaching and teaching colleagues as well as other friends he has made through his great love for golf.  A Golf Tournament was held each year in Ed's honor and the proceeds from this event are the main source of funding for the scholarships provided each year as well as other charitable donations made in Ed's name.

Each year, scholarships of $1000 Each Will be awarded to graduating seniors (one male and one female). These scholarships are open to students throughout the province.
