The Scholarship Committee is now accepting applications. The scholarships awarded at Sawgrass Country Club are financial grants to eligible employees and their dependents, funded by member donations to the Sawgrass Foundation, Inc.

All scholarship awards will be selected by the Scholarship Committee, which is a subcommittee of the Sawgrass Foundation and not part of the Club management. The Scholarship Committee will make final decisions on applications based on eligibility, the reasonability of employee education plans, and money available.

After each semester or school period, a transcript or statement from the school about successful completion is required. All applicants will need to submit a new application each semester and submit a new invoice when it is received.

General Scholarship Amount

Scholarships will be given to cover tuition, books and school fees on a semester basis, up to $2,500 maximum per semester and $5,000 annually. The Foundation will normally pay the school directly, but each case will be decided as needed.
