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 10,000 outstanding young men and women have been awarded Evans Scholarships. Most recipients attend one of the 14 universities across the nation where the Evans Scholars Foundation owns and 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 14 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.

"Through the Evans Scholarship I have made lifelong friends and important networking connections, while earning a degree from an amazing university. I will continue to succeed personally and professionally because of my experience as an Evans Scholar."

- 2014 Miami University graduate Katelyn Fauble
