CUMBERLAND, ME – Maine Golf is pleased to announce the recipients from the class of 2022 earning awards from the Maine Golf Scholarship Fund. Since its inception in 1950, the Fund has helped nearly 580 students hailing from all 16 counties across the Pine Tree State to pursue higher education. Maine Golf is now approaching $1.8 million given as scholarships to Maine students with a passion for golf since its modest start.
“Awarding scholarships has been one of the core missions of Maine Golf for over 70 years,” says Brian Bickford, executive director of Maine Golf. “There were so many great applicants, and we wish them all continued success as they take their next step in life’s journey.”
Students are selected based on their character, financial need, academic performance, and participation in the game of golf and/or golf industry. For 2022, the Maine Golf Scholarship Fund Committee has selected 15 new students to receive awards of $1,500 per year, renewable for up to four years of undergraduate education. Two additional students will receive a one-time grant of $5,000 from the Frank Langlois Scholarship Fund.
“On behalf of the Board of Directors, I want to congratulate the 2022 Maine Golf scholarship recipients and the many talented student-athletes who applied in record numbers this year,” says Neil Angis, chair of the Scholarship Fund Committee.
“We’re very proud to support these exceptional young people as they go off to do great things in college and beyond. I also want to sincerely thank our players, member clubs, volunteers, and generous donors for their continued support in making these vital scholarships possible.”
We wish all the best to these talented individuals as they continue with their education. For more information on the Maine Golf Scholarship Fund, or to make a donation to the Fund, contact email@example.com or donate here.
