Evans Scholars Foundation

A life-changing opportunity

Being a caddie provides students with the opportunity to learn the importance of work ethic, communication, perseverance, and financial independence while developing valuable leadership and people skills. Caddying can also provide a path to college through the Evans Scholars Foundation.

Established in 1930 by the Western Golf Association and famed amateur golfer Charles “Chick” Evans Jr., the Evans Scholars Foundation awards full tuition and housing college scholarships to high-achieving students with a strong caddie record, excellent academics, demonstrated financial need, and outstanding character. The nation’s largest scholarship program for caddies, the Evans Scholarship, is valued at more than $125,000 over four years.

Currently, 1,130 Evans Scholars attend 24 leading universities nationwide, and more than 12,000 caddies have graduated as Evans Scholars.
