Scholarships Awarded to 183 Students for 2017-18 School Year

The PGA of America's Financial Assistance Fund Scholarship Program has awarded scholarships to 183 students totaling $411,000 for the 2017-18 school year.

Founded in 1986, the PGA Financial Assistance Fund Scholarship Program has awarded more than $6.5 million to 3247 students. Run by the PGA's Membership Services department, the program encourages and promotes the attainment of higher education for the children and grandchildren of PGA Members.

Funding for these scholarships is made possible through voluntary contributions to the PGA Financial Assistance Fund (a tax-deductible 501c3 fund) from PGA Members and other donors.
