2017 PGA Scholarship Winners Announced
11 Awarded from Carolinas
The PGA of America recently announced its 2017 PGA Scholarship winners and we’re thrilled to announce that 11 CPGA member-affiliated students were selected to receive scholarships – up from 9 in 2016. The PGA Financial Assistance Fund Scholarship Program was established in 1986 to provide college scholarships for graduating high school seniors and college students who are the children or grandchildren of a PGA member. It is an academic-based scholarship program that takes into account the following criteria depending on the class level of the student:
High School Graduating Senior:
Current College Student (has not reached senior year)
Of the 21 applicants this year, three winners from the high school category and eight from the college category, with Carolinas PGA Section affiliations, were granted scholarship funding. All winning candidates were awarded the National Scholarship - $2,000.
