  • Scholarship Description
  • The J. Wood Platt scholarship is available to young persons who have caddied for at least one season at one or more Member Clubs of the Golf Association of Philadelphia. Additionally, they must be high school graduates with academic qualifications and in search of aid for college expenses. The selection of those caddies to receive scholarship funds is made on an annual basis by the Trustees.

    The awards are for both undergraduate and graduate students. Students with no financial need (as determined by the filing of FAFSA and Award letter) will be considered Honorary Caddie-Scholars. It is the aim of the Scholarship to continue financial aid to all caddie-scholars for the full length of their college career as long as they meet the minimal responsibilities of the program. Awards are re-evaluated each year and based primarily on financial need. It is mandatory that recipients continue to caddie while receiving grants from the Scholarship. It is important to note that these are not golf scholarships and athletic ability is not taken into consideration. For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
