scholarship is a great way to finance your child’s studies and enable them to fully concentrate on getting their degree instead of worrying about money issues. It’s time to submit the PGA application to fund their higher education!
Last year, the Colorado Section changed its criteria for applicants. All children of Colorado PGA Members who qualify, whether they receive PGA of America funding or not, will be eligible to be considered for financial assistance from the Colorado Section.

Since 2008, Colorado college students have been the recipients of more than $355,000 in funding to assist them with their higher education aspirations – more than $205,000 from the Section and $156,000 from the PGA of America.
