 Evans Scholarship is for high-achieving golfers with limited funds, which covers both accommodation and tuition. Golfers must satisfy the criteria of having a solid golfing record, great academics, proven financial need, and exceptional character in order to be eligible.

Evans Scholarship

Applications for scholarships are accepted by both college freshmen and high school seniors as early as the start of their senior year.

By October 15, the entire application, including supplementary materials like assessments, recommendation letters, transcripts, test results, a CSS profile, and FAFSA data, must be finished.

Once the application has been submitted in full, the scholarship committee will start reviewing it. Finalists will be interviewed by the Committee, which will also make the decision. By April 1st, all choices will be made in full.

Evans Scholarship Foundation

Charles “Chick” Evans Jr., a well-known amateur golfer, asked the WGA to manage the fund he had set up to send deserving caddies to college in 1929.

In 1930, the WGA gave out its first two scholarships, sending caddies Jim McGinnis and Harold Fink to Northwestern University.

All Evans Scholars attended Northwestern University until the start of World War II, and it was there that the first Scholarship House was built.

WGA Directors were aware of Chick’s dream’s influence on the lives of young people with restricted access to a college education as the Evans Scholars Foundation evolved.

The WGA Directors continued the Evans Scholars Program after Chick’s first donation was depleted by making their own contributions.

The Foundation is now supported by donations from Par Club members across the nation and money earned from our events.

With the aid of the Evans Scholars Program, students can maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.4 and a graduation rate of 95% while gaining access to academic, professional, and social opportunities.

In 21 top colleges, a record number of 1,070 Evans Scholars are enrolled for the 2020–21 academic year. Since 1930, 11,556 young men and women have graduated as Evans Scholars.
