In 2011 The Rhode Island Women’s Golf
Association awarded $11,650.00 in scholarship aid to young women who
have participated in the Junior Program or have played for their
school teams and have distinguished themselves in all of their
endeavors including golf, academics and community involvement.
The scholarships are awarded on the
basis of financial need, academics, community service,
recommendations as well as participation in golf.
The Fund has made annual awards since
1981. The Fund is supported by contributions from each RIWGA member
as well as contributions from individuals and golf associations, from
memorials and from the CVS Caremark Classic Golf Tournament.
The Scholarship was established to
provide undergraduate scholarship aid to female junior golfers in
Rhode Island and nearby Massachusetts at the college of their choice.
The awards are available for 4 years providing the student maintains
a C average.
Any girl in her senior high school year
who is eligible should complete an application (found on the RIWGA
website) and mail it to Pat Davitt, 17 Oak Manor Drive, Barrington,
RI 02806 along with the recommendations and financial information.
Girls applying for continuing aid must send their transcript each
year to Pat Davitt at the above address. 2012 applications may be
obtained by clicking here.
It is hoped that when recipients finish
college and are self-supporting they will donate to the Scholarship
Fund. Anyone who is interested in making a donation may send it to
Pat Davitt at the above address.
