Funded through the Environmental Institute for Golf and Syngenta, the program provides $1,500 scholarships to the children and grandchildren of Golf Course Superintendents Association of America members who have been active for five or more consecutive years.
Funded by the GCSAA’s philanthropic organization, the Environmental Institute of Golf, and supported by Syngenta Professional Products, the $1,500 college scholarships were awarded to 20 children or grandchildren of GCSAA members. The awards are based on academic achievement, community involvement, extracurricular activities and leadership skills.
The golf organization awarded five children of GCSAA members with one-time, one-year grants to fund their education at an accredited college or trade school. The grant was established in honor of Par Aide company founder Garske, and is funded by Par Aide, a golf course accessory company, and administered by the Environmental Institute for Golf, the philanthropic organization of GCSAA.
