Scholarship Fund History

 

The MSGA Scholarship Fund was started in 1950, originally as a caddie scholarship. It was expanded in the 1970s and an endowment fund was started. The goal of the endowment fund is to ensure the future of the Scholarship Fund by having it be self-supporting. In 2017, the Fund topped the endowment goal of $1,000,000 in assets for the first time.

A goal of the current MSGA is to grow the number of recipients the Fund is able to help, and boost the dollar amount of each recipient's award. To get there, the MSGA Scholarship Fund relies on the generosity of donors and sponsors who support our commitment to helping Maine youth afford their higher education. Every contribution made is important to this mission.
