CHICK EVANS SCHOLARSHIP
What is the Chick Evans Scholarship?
The Chick Evans Scholarship is a full tuition and housing college scholarship for golf caddies that is renewable for up to four years. Each year, more than 800 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.
Since 1930, when the first two Evans Scholars enrolled at Northwestern University, more than 10,000 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 owns and operates a Scholarship House.
At the Evans Scholarship Houses, students live and work together cooperatively. Each House elects its own officers, runs social and service activities, and participates in campus programs. The Evans Scholars Chapters have earned a reputation on each campus for scholastic achievement and excellence in community service.
Living and working together provides Evans Scholars an opportunity to develop leadership capabilities and strong communication skills. We believe that the sense of empowerment fostered through chapter living is largely responsible for the tremendous success of our 14 Evans Scholarship Houses. When you compare our chapter houses with other campus organizations, they rank at or near the top in academics and community service.
