Yates Scholarship Program

Scholarship Value: $4,000
Awards Available: 63

The Yates Scholarship Program provides college grants to employees and their dependents at GSGA Member Clubs. Named for Charles, Dan and Danny Yates of Atlanta, all of whom have contributed greatly to the game of golf, the scholarships are based on financial need, character, academic achievement and work experience at a GSGA Member Club. During the 2023-24 school year, the GSGAF will support 65 Yates Scholars with grants totaling $315,500.

The Yates Scholarships are eligible for renewal. The GSGA Member Club through which each scholar was eligible for the Yates Scholarship Program must remain a Member Club of the GSGA in order for a scholarship to be renewed.
