College Scholarships

FSGA Scholars

FSGA Scholars is a scholarship program made possible by the Florida State Golf Association and our Future of Golf Foundation. In the Spring each year, the FSGA selects a minimum of five golfers from the FJT's graduating class to be awarded a renewable four-year scholarship. A total of $10,000 in college scholarships will be awarded each year, resulting in $40,000 granted to each graduating class.

Payment & Student Responsibilities

Each scholarship is awarded on a two semester term (fall & spring). Payment of the scholarship is made in two installments to the college or university the student is attending. The first payment is made during the fall semester, and the second payment is made during the spring semester.

It is the responsibility of the student to provide the FSGA with the correct mailing address for the payment of the scholarship (usually the financial aid department). Email all questions and information to kyle@fsga.org.

Requirements for Scholarship Renewals

The Scholarship Committee reviews each renewal every year. A GPA of 3.0 or higher, a brief letter detailing the recent school year and additional information are used in the renewal determination process.  The brief letter (or email) should focus on two points; what was the best part of the previous school year, and what was the worst part and what did you learn.
