Hitting The Golf Ball Sports Scholarship - Hitting The Golf Ball

Hitting The Golf Ball Sports Scholarship

At Hitting The Golf Ball, we value education and helping those in need. We also understand that education can be a significant expense and know how difficult it can be for students and their families to make ends meet. Between housing, tuition, books, and school supplies, the cost of attending college or graduate school can easily rise into the tens of thousands of dollars, if not more.

In an effort to make things a little easier for students and their families, we are pleased to be offering an annual $1,000 scholarship to individuals who are currently attending or planning on attending college or graduate school in the near future.

If you have a passion for sports and especially golf, this scholarship might be of interest to you. Even though we are an advocate of sports, you do not have to be an athlete to apply.​

Application for 2017 Closed

We are overwhelmed by the number and quality of applications. The winner will be chosen and contacted by February 15th, 2017.

Regrettably, we are unable to provide a scholarship for every single applicant. With that being said, we run this scholarship annually and you are most welcomed to apply again next year.
