The VSGA Scholarship Program of the Virginia Golf Foundation funds scholarships, primarily through its VIP Card Program, to worthy Virginia high school students who are interested in golf and wish to attend Virginia colleges and universities. The awards are conditional on students’ good progress in academics. Criteria for the awards are an active interest in golf (ability not important), academic achievement, citizenship, character and financial need.
Since being launched in 1985 with three awards for $4,000, the program has now given out more than $1.5 million ($1,583,600) in its 26 years. With 58 scholarships in 2010, the total number of recipients has reached 704 students.
