Pebble Beach Company Foundation has established a scholarship program to assist employees’ children who plan to continue education in college or vocational school programs. Renewable scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at an accredited institution of the student’s choice.
This program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability, or national origin.
Applicants to the Pebble Beach Company Foundation Scholarship Program for Employees’ Children must:
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive an award ranging from $2,500 to $5,000. Up to twenty-eight (28) awards will be awarded. Students attending four-year universities will receive $5,000 and students attending two-year colleges will receive $2,500. The undergraduate awards may be renewed up to three additional years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first.
There will be one (1) $5,000 graduate scholarship available to students age 26 and under at the time of application. The graduate award may be renewed for a second consecutive year or until a graduate degree is earned, whichever occurs first.
The top scholar demonstrating substantial community service will receive the Mark Verbonich named award.
Renewal is contingent upon maintaining a 3.0 cumulative grade point average on a 4.0 scale (or equivalent), full-time enrollment, and continuation of the program by the Pebble Beach Company Foundation. Renewal students will be asked to submit a short essay describing their progress in accomplishing goals and providing any changes in educational plans.
Awards are for undergraduate and graduate study.
Selection of Recipients
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, honors, work experience, statement of goals and aspirations, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an online recommendation. Applications from college-bound students and vocational-technical school students are evaluated in two separate groups. Financial need is not considered.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Pebble Beach Company Foundation play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
Applicants will be notified in April. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.

Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Pebble Beach Company Foundation. Payments are made in one installment in early August.
