The Maine State Golf Association Scholarship Fund Committee is pleased to announce thirteen new scholarship awards of $1,500 each for the 2012-2013 academic year. The MSGA Scholarship is renewable on good academic standing for a maximum of four years of undergraduate study.
The Scholarship Fund has been in existence since 1950, and is intended for Maine young people of good character who show an active participation in golf as a player or employee at a Maine club, with demonstrated financial need and a strong record of academic achievement.
The MSGA, its member clubs, and its member players are proud to commit more than $55,000 each year to scholarships. Part of the proceeds from all MSGA competitions go toward the Scholarship Fund. The Pro-Am of the Maine Open, currently sponsored by Charlie’s Auto Dealerships of Augusta, is the largest single source of contributions to the MSGA Scholarship Fund. For information about entering a team in the Pro-Am contact Nancy Storey at the MSGA office, 829-3549.

Tyler Walton of Turner, son of Warren and Sharon Walton; Tyler is also the recipient of the Winchenbach Award as the top scholar among the new recipients.
