The Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA) is the professional association for the men and women who manage and maintain the game’s most valuable resource — the golf course. The golf industry recognizes the association as a key contributor in elevating the game and business. The GCSAA Foundation, the philanthropic organization of GCSAA, secures funding and support to strengthen advocacy, education and research that advances the work of golf course management professionals.
GCSAA believes in investing in the future of the profession. To ensure this, GCSAA's philanthropic arm, the Environmental Institute for Golf, administers a number of different scholarships for students pursuing careers in the golf course industry, future turfgrass researchers and educators, children and grandchildren of GCSAA members, and foreign students studying in the United States. Requirements will vary by award.
