Since 1976, the Palm Beach County Golf Association has awarded over $425,000 to 175 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.
The PBCGA would like to express our sincere thanks to our sponsors and members for all their generous donations to our Scholarship Fund. Because of this support we are able to provide educational opportunities to deserving children from low income families.
