Founded in 1986, the PGA Financial Assistance Fund Scholarship Program has awarded over $4.5 million to nearly 2,300 students. The program encourages and promotes the attainment of higher education goals for children and grandchildren of PGA members. Funding for these scholarships is made possible through voluntary contributions to the PGA Financial Assistance Fund (a tax deductible 501(c)3 fund) from PGA members and other donors.
