SCGA Foundation

The SCGA Junior Scholarship Program is designed to help youth continue their education in college or vocational school.

Over the past decade, SCGA Junior has awarded more than $1.6 million in scholarships.

This year’s class encompasses individuals who are role models in their community, hard workers at school and who have grown in character through their experiences with golf. They are all members of Southern California junior golf programs, and we congratulate them on their educational collegiate journey.

Program Requirements:

All applicants, who must be active SCGA Junior Golf Club members for at least two years, are required to submit:

  • an application,
  • college budget,
  • resume, and
  • personal statement, along with
  • two reference letters from community service or academic professionals.

There is a minimum requirement of a 2.5 GPA and students must maintain full-time academic status.


The 2023/2024 application cycle has closed. The application for 2024/25 will be open December 1, 2023 – May 1, 2024.
