The “Women on Par” Scholarship Program, provided by the LPGA Foundation, was established in 2007 by the EWGA Foundation (now the LPGA Amateur Golf Association) to provide financial assistance to “non-traditional” female students. These scholarships are intended for women, aged 30 and older, who are attending a college or university for the first time or returning to school after an absence to complete their technical/vocational, Associate, or Bachelor’s degree. The scholarships are designed to help these women get “on par,” or get an equal footing, with their peers, friends, and other women who have had a chance to complete their college education.
Applicants and recipients must be female, be at least 30 years of age as of January 1st of the award year and be a U.S. or Canadian citizen, or legal resident of the U.S. or Canada. Applicants must be pursuing a Technical/Vocational, Associates or Bachelor’s degree. (First time applicants to school or must be returning to school after an absence to complete a degree.) Must not have obtained a Bachelor’s degree or higher degree and must be currently enrolled, or accepted to an accredited school, college or university by April 15th of the year the scholarship is awarded. Must be able to demonstrate financial need.
