About Rolling Green's Charity of Choice:
The Evans Scholars Foundation awards full tuition and housing scholarships to high achieving caddies with limited financial means. Established in 1930 by the Western Golf Association and celebrated amateur golfer Charles “Chick” Evans Jr., the Foundation administers the nation’s largest scholarship program for caddies. Currently, 910 students are enrolled at 19 universities, including 14 where the Evans Scholars Foundation owns and operates Scholarship Houses. More than 10,000 men and women have graduated as Evans Scholars.
With tuition rates on the rise, paying for college has become increasingly difficult for many families. In recent years, record numbers of caddies have applied for the Evans Scholarship, showing that the need is greater than ever. To meet these challenges, the Foundation plans to grow the number of Scholars in school to 1,000 by 2020, while expanding the Program geographically from coast to coast. Today, more than 28,700 Par Club donors support the Evans Scholars Foundation. The Foundation is also the sole beneficiary of the BMW Championship, a PGA TOUR FedExCup Playoff event conducted by the Western Golf Association.
