20 Students Awarded Scholarships in Colorado
Family members of Colorado PGA Professionals have been awarded five (5) National Scholarships and 20 Colorado PGA REACH Scholarships! One of the five National awards is the coveted $5,000 John Cox Scholarship [Kennedey Johnson]. The other four students will be receiving $2,000 PGA of America Scholarships [Tanner Ausec, Wyatt Hough, Thomas Noonan and Courtney Thompson].
The PGA Assistance Fund Scholarship provides college scholarships to children and grandchildren of PGA Members based on evidence of academic achievement during high school or college. All applicants who met the qualifications for a PGA of America Scholarship, whether they received PGA of America funding or not, are eligible to be considered for financial aid from the Colorado Section. Therefore, the Colorado PGA REACH Foundation has awarded 20 $1,000 college scholarships for the 2021-2022 academic year. These scholarships are a small token of our appreciation to our Colorado PGA Professionals giving their time to make a positive difference in the lives of others through the game of golf.
Golfers and non-golfers alike have been receiving these scholarships since 2008. Over $424,000 has been awarded to Colorado students – $175,000 from the PGA of America and more than $249,000 from the Colorado PGA REACH Foundation.
Congratulations to the many students and their families for their academic achievements!
