Knowing the costs of higher education will continue to rise, the Environmental Institute for Golf developed this program to provide scholarship assistance to the children and grandchildren of GCSAA members who have been active Class A, Superintendent Members, Class C, Class A-Retired, or Class AA members for five or more consecutive years. Honorees receive a $1,500 award.
Applicants must be enrolled full time at an accredited institution of higher learning, or for high school seniors, they must have been accepted at such an institution for the next academic year.
In addition, award winners are ineligible to apply the year following their award, but can reapply after a one-year hiatus.
The annual deadline is April 15.
The GCSAA Legacy Awards competition offers education aid to the children and grandchildren of GCSAA members. Awards of $1,500 each are funded by Syngenta and the Environmental Institute for Golf.
Applications will be reviewed by an independent committee consisting of three high school educators and three college administrators. All decisions of the committee will be final. Applicants will be notified of their status by mail by June 15 of the year submitted. All scholarship award checks will be made payable to the applicant and his/her educational institution.
