National Amputee Golf
Educational Scholarship Grant
One of the goals of our Association is to provide educational assistance to an amputee
member or his or her dependent(s). Applications are being accepted from qualified
individuals for an educational grant. The scholarship grant will be considered and may be
awarded at the 2013 National Amputee Golf Association Board of Trustees Meetings in
conjunction with the National Tournaments (scheduled for October in 2013).
Criteria for the grant and the methods for implementation are as follows:
- The amount of the grant for a four-year Bachelors' degree will be $2,000.00/year
(maximum), which will be awarded in increments of $1000.00/semester. Tri-semester
programs will be considered but not applicable with regards to payment method. If an
individual is selected, the grant will be issued each year for a maximum of four (4) years or
