AJGA ACE Grant
The AJGA’s Achieving Competitive Excellence (ACE) Grant financial assistance program provides opportunities for juniors who have the talent, but not the financial resources, to play in AJGA events. The ACE Grant relies one hundred percent on contributions from corporate and private donors, as well as Junior-Am proceeds.
Since its inception in 2003, the AJGA has awarded 830 ACE Grants and reimbursed $1.5 million, helping talented juniors compete in over 3,300 AJGA events.
In 2012 alone, 165 junior golfers received more than $357,000 in reimbursement and achieved 117 top ten AJGA finishes. The total value of college scholarships that ACE Grant recipients received in 2012 topped $2.4 million.
Palm Beach County Golf Association Scholarship Fund
Since 1976, the Palm Beach County Golf Association has awarded over $350,000 to 135 area college students to help with their college education. These scholarships have helped students pay for tuition, books and other fees so that they could be more dedicated to their studies.
Since 2010, the PBCGA has partnered with Take Stock in Children – Palm Beach County to provide tuition scholarships to attend the Florida state college of their choice. Take Stock in Children is a statewide mentoring/scholarship program. The program enrolls middle school, low-income students and helps them succeed by providing college and vocational scholarships, volunteer mentors, student advocates, early intervention and long-term support.
Scholarship recipients and their parents sign a performance contract pledging to stay in school, remain drug free, and out of trouble. Upon successful completion of the program, the students receive either a 2-year or a 2+2 scholarship purchased through the Florida Prepaid College Program.
Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors and members, the PBCGA has donated over $100,000 to the Take Stock in Children program since 2010.
South Florida PGA Foundation
