WPGA and Evans unite on Scholarship

Posted November 15, 2005 - Western Pennsylvania Golf Association - Contact



Starting next Fall, one WPGA Scholarship will be worth more than $10,000 per year in room and tuition. The WPGA Scholarship Fund will pay $3000 toward an Evans Scholarship with Western Golf Association, the game's largest scholarship organization, paying the balance. Candidates must be caddies who will most likely attend Penn State or perhaps another university where Evans has chapters. Candidates must apply to both organizations who will then jointly determine the recipient.

The arrangement was finalized at the WPGA Executive Committee's Summer Meeting on August 4 in discussions with Brian Shell, a staff member of Western Golf Association. The WPGA Scholarship Fund typically has ten students in the program in any given school year. One student will be in the combined organizations program at any time.

Applications for the WPGA scholarship are available and must be returned by December 15.
