About the Award

The WGAM Junior Scholarship Fund, Inc. was organized in 1985 for the sole purpose of providing scholarship aid to deserving WGAM junior golfers. It is a federally income-tax-exempt organization as determined by the Internal Revenue Service.

When the merger between the MGA and WGAM become official, the Mass Golf Board of Directors made a decision to continue supporting the WGAM Junior Scholarship Fund so that all existing scholarship funds could go towards assisting deserving candidates.
