Moncrief Scholarship Program


Scholarship Value: $2,000
Awards Available: 12

Georgia's most promising future superintendents are supported by the GSGA Foundation, through the James B. "Monty" Moncrief Scholarship Program. The Moncrief Scholarships honor deserving students in the field of agronomy and turf management at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College (ABAC), the University of Georgia (UGA) and students who work and live in Georgia, but attend an accredited program outside of the state. The scholarship is named in memory of Moncrief, a former Southeastern Green Section Director for the United States Golf Association. This program is also supported by the Georgia Golf Course Superintendents Association.

Students are selected based on academic achievement, character and financial need. The application process includes an interview by a panel that includes representatives from the GSGA Foundation and the Georgia Golf Course Superintendents Association.

The program is in its 42nd year and has granted scholarships to more than 285 Moncrief Scholars during that time. Seven students from ABAC and five from UGA receive scholarships for the 2018-19 school year totaling $22,500.

Applications for the 2020-21 school year will be accepted through March 1, 2020, at 3:00 p.m.
