Scholarship Sponsored by Western Golf Association
The Evans Scholarship is a full tuition and housing college scholarship for high-achieving caddies with limited financial means. To qualify, caddies must meet the requirements of having a strong caddie record, excellent academics, demonstrated financial need and outstanding character.
Scholarship applications are accepted at the beginning of an applicant's senior year of high school, as well as from college freshmen.
The entire application – including supporting documents like evaluations, recommendation letters, transcripts, test scores, a CSS profile and FAFSA information – are expected to be completed by October 30. The Scholarship Committee will begin its review when the application is complete. The Committee will interview finalists, and the final selection rests with the Committee. All decisions will be finalized by April 1.
