Be sure to take advantage of our scholarship awards program from the first day and year of membership.
GCJGF provides college scholarships to ALL graduating junior golf members that meet the conditions for receiving a scholarship. In 2017 and 2018 alone, we awarded over $38,000 in scholarships! There is not another junior golf program in South Florida that provides a similar benefit.
Below, based on the 2018-2019 NCAA Division I Manual, is our criteria to qualify for a scholarship and how the monetary decisions on the awards are made:
- Must be a current member in good standing.
- Must play GCJGF tournaments; Gold and/or Platinum Tours.
- Request a scholarship in writing.
- Provide a copy of your letter of acceptance from the college or university.
- Attend a college or university (of your choice) on a full-time basis.
- Provide a copy of your final report card.
- Provide the number of volunteer hours performed by you.
- Write an essay about what impact GCJGF has made in your life.
How the Board of Directors decides on Scholarship Awards
- The total number of years the applicant has been a GCJGF member.
- The total number of tournaments the member played. Members ARE required to play in events to be considered for a scholarship.
- Final Grade Point Average.
- The total number of Volunteer Hours performed and if assisted GCJGF as part of their Volunteer Hours.
Scholarship Award Values depend on the amount of money available.
The “Wayne McKinney Scholarship” is a $4,000.00 scholarship awarded to one boy and one girl according to an agreement between the recipient and GCJGF. It is distributed over four years at the beginning of each fall term.
This scholarship is awarded in addition to the regular scholarships determined by the Board of Directors.
