Why become a caddie?
- You enjoy the game of golf, and want to learn more about it.
- The benefits include playing privileges at a private club.
- You are looking for part-time work and a way to make income during the spring and summer months.
- College is expensive, and you would like to seek a full college tuition through the Evans Scholarship program!
Chick Evans caddie Scholarship
The Chick Evans Caddie Scholarship is a full tuition and housing college scholarship for golf caddies that is renewable for up to four years. Each year, more than 960 deserving caddies across the country attend college on a four-year scholarship from the Evans Scholars Foundation. Selected applicants must have a strong caddie record, excellent grades, outstanding character and demonstrated financial need. Read more about the scholarship requirements.
Since 1930, when the first two Evans Scholars enrolled at Northwestern University, more than 10,600 outstanding young men and women have been awarded Evans Scholarships. Most recipients attend one of the 14 universities across the nation where the Evans Scholars Foundation operates a Scholarship House.
The Western Golf Association awards over 800 full tuition Evans Scholarships each year around the country for those who meet the following criteria: 50+ rounds of caddying in high school over at least two years, demonstrated financial need, academic performance, and outstanding character and leadership experience and/or community service.
The WGA selection committee is consistently impressed by members of The First Tee, so get involved in one of the local caddying programs and start looping. Eagle member Kevin Rini did, and was selected in 2014 for a full scholarship to the University of Washington. You will now find Kevin working at the UW Driving Range while enrolled as an undergraduate. Drop in and say hello, congratulations, and ask about his experience.
