About Scholarship

Michael Rebryk (1927‐2010) was first elected to the UCU Board on February 20, 1966 eventually becoming its second president/chair in 1981, succeeding the founding President, Wasyl Sytnyk. Michael held the post of Chair until 1997. Upon his retirement from the Board on January 26, 2000, the Board honoured Michael for his over three decades of active service to the credit union by appointing him an Honourary Life Director. He continued to attend Board meetings of the credit union in an advisory capacity until his deteriorating health no longer permitted him to do so. Michael was a particularly active member of the Ukrainian National Federation and the broader Ukrainian community in Toronto. He was a sports enthusiast who was a onetime basketball and volleyball coach and who helped introduce baseball into Ukraine in the early 1990s. He had a great tenor voice and loved to sing and was a past member of the UNF Boyan Choir and the St. Demetrius choir for many years. In recognition of his lifelong interests in sports and the performing arts, this award will be made to a candidate of Ukrainian heritage who:

  • is enrolled full time in a post‐secondary institution in a field of study that will lead to a career in either:
    • Sports, recreation, physical education and related disciplines
    • Sports medicine, kinesiology and related disciplines
    • Music, dance, drama, or any of the performing arts disciplines
