MSGA Scholarship Application Deadline Extended to May 1
Mar 24, 2020
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. Since then, the fund has given more that $1.7 million to deserving students from all 16 counties across the Pine Tree State.
We are now accepting applications from Maine high school students interested in benefiting from the MSGA Scholarship Fund. All interested students are invited to apply, bearing in mind the criteria of good character, golf participation, academic performance, and financial need.
Please be aware that the application requires verification of your golf participation.
For example, if you work at your club's pro shop or on the greens crew, you will need to tell us how many hours per week you worked, for how many years, and you will need a note or letter from your supervisor verifying that information.
Financial need is determined based on the Student Aid Report generated by your completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The MSGA Scholarship application requires candidates to submit a copy of their SAR (not the full FAFSA application). More specifically, we need a single page from the SAR that shows the student's name and the EFC (Expected Family Contribution) number on it.
Do you know a young golfer who could benefit from the MSGA Scholarship Fund? Help spread the word so that deserving Maine students can earn up to $6,000 over four years to help with undergraduate tuition! Any questions can be directed to Jane Gildart at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Academic performance is scored based on official transcripts, so don't forget to have them sent as soon as possible. Deadline for applications is May 1.
