The GCWGA established the scholarship fund in 2006 to assist local female high school seniors in pursuing their higher education. Since its inception, 81 scholarships totaling $104,000 have been awarded to young women across the Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky area. The Scholarship Foundation is funded through generous private donations from our members or through their scheduled Foundation Days at their respective clubs. Additional funding comes from the GCWGA and the SHE (Scholarship for Higher Education) tournament held each year in September.
GCWGA looks forward to continuing our quest to encourage young women to play the game of golf. After all, these young women are the future of women's golf!
