NCPGA Golf Scholarships
Over forty graduates from the NCPGA junior golf program have attended colleges and universities, partially funded by scholarship awards presented by the Association. Each year the NCPGA awards two, $3000 scholarships paid over a four-year period in $750 increments. The Matthew P. Faylor Memorial and the Todd E. Clark Memorial Scholarships are awards in memory of two of the Association’s first participants in the junior golf program. Applications must be completed by golfers who are high school seniors and returned to the NCPGA office no later than March 15. A committee of regional college administrative officials and professionals make the selection of the successful applicants.
