College Scholarship Opportunities

We are pleased to tell you that there is so much scholarship money available to high school seniors who even just have an interest in golf!

First Tee Scholarships

First Tee College Scholarship Program supports selected alumni throughout their college career. The need and merit-based program provides scholarships up to $5,000 per year, renewable for up to four years of college admission. The program also provides professional development workshops, access to internships and full-time employment placement post-graduation. One of the key factors of the program is pairing Scholars with a dedicated adult mentor who will help encourage and guide them throughout the four years.

The program is open to graduating high school seniors planning to attend college the following year. Applicants must be active members of First Tee chapters and will be considered based on financial need, academic performance, chapter involvement, volunteerism and other criteria.  Applications are not public; please email Coach Bill ([email protected]) if you are interested.

VSGA Scholarships

Since its humble beginnings almost 40 years ago, the VSGA-VIP Scholarship Foundation has awarded over $2.8 million to more than 1,100 students with an interest in golf.  Much of this money is collected each year through the VSGA-VIP Card program which was originally designed to provide value and access for golfers, generate play at participating VSGA member clubs, and produce revenue for scholarships.

Currently 6 named awards are presented each year, along with other additional merit scholarships (adding up to over 33) each year to Virginia high school seniors.

Hulede Collegiate Golf Scholarship

Golf is often thought of as a white-dominated sport, with many minority players not breaking into the field due to a lack of access rather than a lack of skill.

The opportunity to build connections and network through golf can lead to many opportunities down the road, including athletic opportunities as well as career advancements. This scholarship seeks to support student-athletes who excel in golf, community involvement, and extracurricular participation.

Please note that most applications do not come out until January/February of the senior’s graduating year.
