COLLEGIATE GOLF

A key part of the Foundation’s mandate is to raise funds in support of the advancement of golf in Canada. Since 1982, the Foundation has awarded more than $10.8 million to Canadian student athletes and institutions in support of post-secondary golf programs.

GOLF CANADA FOUNDATION SCHOLARSHIPS

Golf Canada Foundation encourages the athletic and academic careers of promising Canadian golfers and students of the industry by offering financial assistance through scholarships and awards.

The Golf Canada Foundation scholarship program is funded through generous donations from corporations, golf clubs, associations and individual friends of golf. Golf Canada, the Canadian Seniors’ Golf Association and the Scholarships and Grants Selection Committee play important roles in contributing to our scholarship fund each year. Golf Canada Foundation strives to build additional scholarship funds and grants to help Canadians use the great game of golf to achieve their potential.

COLLEGIATE GRANTS

Golf Canada Foundation proudly supports student golfers at Canadian post-secondary academic institutions. Since 1982, the Foundation has awarded more than $7.3 million in grants to Canadian collegiate golf programs. The Foundation is pleased continue to award grants in support of University and College Golf Athletics programs on an annual basis, to foster growth and improvement throughout the Canadian collegiate golf system.

In an effort to increase overall fundraising and long-term sustainability for collegiate golf in Canada, the Golf Canada Foundation Grant program has transitioned into a fund matching process. All Canadian colleges and universities who choose to sign up for Golf Canada Foundation grants will have to show, on a budget approved by the athletic director of the institution, external funds raised (or brought in) by the golf program that have NOT been supplied by the school. Only external funds are eligible to be matched by Golf Canada Foundation Grant monies.
