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

The Scholars: Over the past ten years, SCGA Junior has awarded more than $1.1 million to 96 college students. 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.

If you have any questions about the program, please contact Faith Bender at

The 2022/2023 application cycle is closed.
