PGA REACH has awarded scholarships to 17 students at nine colleges through the PGA WORKS Golf Management University Scholarship Program for the 2022-2023 academic school year. The $8,000 scholarships were presented to talented and motivated students from diverse backgrounds who are working toward PGA Membership through one of the 18 accredited PGA Golf Management University Programs across the nation.
PGA WORKS, an initiative designed to evolve the demographic composition of the golf industry’s workforce and the PGA of America’s Membership, leverages fellowships, scholarships, career exploration events and the PGA WORKS Collegiate Championship to inspire and engage talent from diverse backgrounds to pursue key employment positions across the golf industry.
These students pursue bachelor’s degrees in a golf industry-compatible major, with the ultimate goal of obtaining PGA Membership.
Since its inception in 2018, a total of 47 individuals have earned PGA WORKS Golf Management University scholarships, with a total of $376,000 of overall scholarship support delivered to date.
“PGA REACH is proud to award these outstanding students with a PGA WORKS Golf Management University Scholarship, as they pursue their dream of attaining PGA Membership,” said PGA President Jim Richerson. “These 17 aspiring PGA Members represent the next generation of golf industry leaders, and we are delighted to support their journey.”
Scholarship recipients were selected on the basis of academic record, leadership demonstrated through participation in school and community activities, honors and work experience, a statement of goals and aspirations, unique personal or family circumstances, an outside appraisal, active participation in the game of golf and playing ability.
