The Evans Caddie Scholarship, administered locally by the Victoria Golf Club is a very lucrative and generous tuition award ($50,000 over 4 years) tenable at Northwestern University, Miami of Ohio University and University of Colorado. Students who meet the following criteria are encouraged to apply:
- Demonstrated financial need: Candidates and their parents MUST clearly establish their need for financial assistance. Parents will be required to submit to a needs test which will include submission of tax returns. There is an income cap for this scholarship.
- Excellent academics: Candidates should demonstrate an A average from grade 9 – 12 and MUST have completed grade 11 with an A average in academic courses. All candidates are required to take the ACT exam and score at least 30pts.
- Outstanding character: Candidates must be outstanding in character, integrity and leadership. They MUST have completed charity service over and above the Ministry of Education requirement.
- Strong caddie record: Candidates must have caddied, successfully and regularly, at VGC for a minimum of two years prior to September 1 of their graduating year and are also expected to caddie and/or work at their sponsoring club during the summer when they apply for the scholarship. A strong caddie record is 100+ loops. A caddie MUST complete at least 35 rounds in a summer. As this is a requirement, it is critical that the caddie be a resident of Victoria.
This scholarship is open to non-golfers and to both genders. It is appropriate to apply in grades 8 and 9 as the loops must be completed by the end of summer of your grade 11 year.
As the Victoria Golf Club is accepting applicants on a first come, first served basis and there are only a few opportunities each year, please email Ms. Casey ([email protected]) as soon as possible to discuss your eligibility. Intakes generally occur in January but I will accept information on a rolling basis.
