A Life-Changing Opportunity

Sending Caddies
to College

In 1930, the Western Golf Association and celebrated amateur golfer Charles “Chick” Evans Jr. established the Evans Scholars Foundation. Their mission was to provide full tuition and housing college scholarships to caddies with limited financial means.

The first two Evans Scholars enrolled at Northwestern University in 1930. Since then, we’ve helped more than 11,000 hardworking young men and women get to college. Our Evans Scholars Program addresses the barriers to college graduation faced by students and prepares them for a lifetime of success.

Today's Scholars are Tomorrow's Leaders

The Evans Scholarship is a full tuition and housing college scholarship for high-achieving caddies with limited financial means. To qualify, caddies must meet the requirements of having a strong caddie record, excellent academics, demonstrated financial need and outstanding character.

Evans Scholars attend one of 18 leading universities nationwide. They live and work together in community, with each chapter electing its own officers, running social and service activities and participating in campus programs.

From Caddie, to College, to Career

The support provided by the Evans Scholars Program helps students achieve a cumulative 3.3 GPA and 95 percent graduation rate. Over 98 percent of 2019 graduates were employed full time or attending graduate school within six months.


Our Alumni make up a vibrant network of successful men and women committed to giving back. They have become successful teachers, doctors, lawyers and CEOs across the country and the world. They run major corporations; are industry leaders in fields like transportation, oil and medicine; and have been appointed by U.S. presidents to serve on advisory committees.

More than a Summer Job

An Investment in
the Future

We're proud of the history of golf as a walking game. The core values that underscore a caddie's presence on the course are the same ones that make them successful later in life.

That's why we help young men and women learn to caddie, assist clubs in starting new caddie programs and work to improve existing programs.

The WGA Caddie Academy

The WGA Caddie Academy is a special summer program that provides caddie opportunities to under-resourced high school students who ultimately hope to pursue an Evans Scholarship. Students come from all across the United States to caddie at clubs in the Chicago area while living together.

Through the Caddie Academy, they have the chance to earn money, meet role models and learn valuable life lessons on and off the golf course. After successfully completing three summers, they become eligible to apply for the Evans Scholarship.

Since 2012, 55 graduates of the Caddie Academy have earned full tuition and housing Evans Scholarships.

Carry the Game

Carry the Game is a nonprofit advocacy group aimed at increasing the number and diversity of youth caddies nationwide. By promoting the life-changing benefits of caddying, Carry the Game is preserving the tradition of golf for its future by developing lifelong players.

This WGA-led effort also receives support from partners like the World Golf Foundation, United States Golf Association, PGA of America, The First Tee and Youth on Course.

The Caddie Hall
of Fame

The Caddie Hall of Fame highlights the tradition and importance of caddying by recognizing individuals who devoted their lives to the game of golf through caddying or by supporting the role of caddies.

Past Hall of Fame inductees include Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson, Charles “Chick” Evans Jr., Francis Ouimet, Steve Williams, Jim “Bones” Mackay and the Murray Brothers.

Endowed Named Scholarships

Endowed Named Evans Scholarships honor a friend, loved one or organization and provide permanent support to the Evans Scholars Foundation.

Create an Endowed Named Scholarship by making a gift of $125,00 to our endowment fund, payable over up to five years. The Scholarship can be awarded to an Evans Scholar based on the major, geographical region or country club of your choosing, and the designation will follow them throughout their college career.

Annual letters from recipients and our Endowed Named Scholarship events give you a unique opportunity to meet your Evans Scholar and develop a personal relationship. We’ll also recognize your contribution in our annual Donors Report.

The Match Play Challenge

The Match Play Challenge is the major gifts element of our annual Par Club fundraising campaign. Each year, our Match Play Partners make commitments of $50,000 or greater to the campaign. Those funds are pooled together and used to match the gifts of $2,500 and greater we receive.

This initiative has been a game-changer for young caddies nationwide. Our supporters have made more than $108 million in commitments through the Match Play Challenge since it launched for the first time in 2011. Those critical funds have enabled us to provide more young men and women with the life-changing opportunity of a college education.
