PGA REACH, the 501(c)3 foundation of PGA of America, has established a scholarship program to assist students intent on pursuing PGA of America Membership. These $8,000 scholarships are designed to improve the recruitment and retention of talented and motivated students from diverse and historically underrepresented backgrounds, who are pursuing PGA Membership through PGA Golf Management University Programs nationwide.
This program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarships and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Eligibility for individual programs is determined at the sole discretion of the sponsor, and eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team.

Eligible individuals exclude persons or family members of the PGA of America National Board, staff, or scholarship selection committee.
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive an $8,000 award. Up to twenty-five (25) awards will be granted. Awards are not renewable, but students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.
One award will be given to the top candidate interested or experienced in working internationally. If there are no qualified candidates for the international interest award, it will be given to the next ranked candidate.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
Applicants will be notified in March. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.
