The Bud Tinsley Sport Leadership Scholarship was created in memory of Robert (Bud) Tinsley by his family and friends to recognize a Manitoba student athlete who demonstrates similar leadership traits that were attributable to Bud. Bud was introduced to organized football in high school and his athletic career and contributions persisted from there. Bud had a reputation as a fearsome tackler and played that position for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers from 1950-1960, serving as the perennial team captain and played in Grey Cup championships in 1958 and 1959. His numerous awards included: induction into the Winnipeg Blue Bombers Hall of Fame, the CFL Hall of Fame and four time inductee into the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame. In addition to his outstanding athlete results, Bud gave tirelessly of himself as active volunteer leader with the Shriners, community groups and the sport community throughout his life. The recipient of this $500 scholarship will be selected from among the successful MFFS Scholarship recipients.
