Scholarship Requirements

Each year, more than 800 deserving caddies attend college on full tuition and housing grants from the Evans Scholars Foundation. To qualify, caddies must be nominated by their club and meet four requirements:

  • Strong caddie record: Applicants must have caddied, successfully and regularly, for a minimum of two years and are also expected to caddie and/or work at their sponsoring club during the summer when they apply for the scholarship.
  • Excellent academics: Applicants must have completed their junior year of high school with above a B average in college preparatory courses and are required to take the ACT.
  • Demonstrated financial need: Applicants must clearly establish their need for financial assistance.
  • Outstanding character: Applicants must be outstanding in character, integrity and leadership.

Applicants are evaluated and compete on the above criteria for the limited number of Chick Evans Caddie Scholarships awarded annually. The Scholarship Committee will interview finalists and the final selection rests with the Committee.

Almost all Evans Scholars attend one of the 14 universities where the Foundation maintains a Scholarship House. An Evans Scholar is asked to fulfill four requirements: They must maintain a strong academic record, be actively involved in house and campus affairs, respect their fellow Scholars and faithfully perform assigned house duties.
