The distance from here to there is a college scholarship

The Chick Evans Caddie Scholarship is a full tuition and housing college scholarship for golf caddies that is renewable for up to four years. Each year, more than 900 deserving caddies across the country attend college on a four-year scholarship from the Evans Scholars Foundation. Selected applicants must have a strong caddie record, excellent grades, outstanding character and demonstrated financial need.

Since 1930, when the first two Evans Scholars enrolled at Northwestern University, more than 10,400 outstanding young men and women have been awarded Evans Scholarships. Most recipients attend one of the 15 universities across the nation where the Evans Scholars Foundation operates a Scholarship House. 

Chapter living

At the Evans Scholarship Houses, students live and work together cooperatively. Each chapter elects its own officers, runs social and service activities and participates in campus programs. The Evans Scholars chapters have earned a reputation on each campus for scholastic achievement and excellence in community service.

Living and working together provides Evans Scholars an opportunity to develop leadership capabilities and strong communication skills. We believe that the sense of empowerment fostered through chapter living is largely responsible for the tremendous success of our 15 Evans Scholarship chapters. When you compare our Scholarship Houses with other campus organizations, they rank at or near the top in academics and community service.

There are also Evans Scholars at five additional universities, where they live together in a designated residence hall.

"The Chick Evans Scholarship for caddies provided me with a better future. It helped shape who I am as an individual and remarkably changed my whole future. I am so thankful to have earned this full-ride scholarship; it is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience."

-University of Colorado Evans Scholar Asni Solomon
