LPGA FOUNDATION SCHOLARSHIPS
The LPGA Foundation administers several scholarship programs for young women who enjoy the game of golf, and plan to attend college in the fall. Qualifications for all scholarships include strong academic programs, community service and recommendations.
The LPGA Foundation's structure also allows for the establishment of endowed scholarships in honor or in memory of individuals who made a significant difference in the world of golf.
