Scholars

Not your typical students - and not your typical dorms

There are currently 965 Evans Scholars who attend 19 leading universities nationwide. Most Scholars attend one of the 14 universities across the country where the Evans Scholars Foundation owns and operates a Scholarship House. It is here where Scholars live and learn together, work with and care for each other.

They are top students, with all Scholarship Houses boasting a cumulative GPA of 3.3 and a graduation rate of 95 percent. They are promising change-makers on campus and future leaders in the workplace and in their communities. They are members of campus and community organizations, and they make giving back a priority, at both the chapter and university level. They go on to achieve success in graduate school and in professions that range from teaching to finance and everything in between.

Funding scholarships is the name of the game. Since 1930, the WGA has administered the Evans Scholars Foundation, one of the nation's largest privately funded college scholarship programs. This is thanks to Charles "Chick" Evans Jr., who outdistanced his achievements as a champion golfer by setting up his fund. He trusted the WGA with his legacy and, to date, we've provided more than $365 million in tuition and housing in his name.

  

"There are times I thought, 'no way I'm going to get the Evans Scholarship.' But it is possible, it is dreamable."
