Junior Golf Scholarship Application

Junior Golf Scholarships

The South Dakota Golf Association Junior Golf Foundation offers six $1,500 scholarships to high school seniors who will be attending a post high school educational facility in South Dakota.  Scholarships will be paid in the second semester. Scholarship winners will be responsible for sending verification from their school stating the student is enrolled full time for the spring semester of 2020.    


  • Applicants must have lived in the state of South Dakota for a minimum of the past two years.
  • Applicant will be attending a four-year South Dakota college, university or accredited post high school institution during the upcoming fall semester.
  • Applicant must provide history on their golf participation and accomplishments and indicate future plans in golf


A committee of SDGAJGF Directors will determine scholarship winners. Participation in SDGA-related play will be given a high priority.  Winners of scholarships will be determined by participation on the SDGA Junior Tour, SDGA Adult championships and the SDGA Junior Championship. In addition, applicants will be judged by their participation in golf at the local club level, their high school academic achievement and participation in other high school activities not related to golf, as well as leadership qualities, honesty, integrity, and sportsmanship.
