Scholarship Fund Application

< RETURN TO Scholarship

The Maine Golf Scholarship Fund is a charitable and educational trust, providing undergraduate scholarships for needy and deserving students who have shown an active interest in golf. Applications for the Maine Golf Scholarship Fund are open to Maine residents only. Please read on for important information about the application process.

Renewing students:

Do not re-apply. All renewal information forms will be sent to you if you remain eligible to receive the scholarship. Make sure we have your permanent mailing address and email address on file. The form will prompt you to submit your transcripts or grade reports along with a request as to where to send the funds for the next year (if applicable).

New applicants:

There is no nomination process for the Maine Golf Scholarship. All interested students are invited to apply, bearing in mind the criteria of good character, golf participation, academic performance, and financial need.

Financial need is determined based on the Student Aid Report (SAR) generated by your completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The Maine Golf Scholarship application requires candidates to submit a copy of their SAR (not the full FAFSA application). More specifically, we need a single page from the SAR that shows the student’s name and the EFC (expected family contribution) number on it. Click here for a helpful guide to making your FAFSA application.

Academic performance is scored based on official transcripts, so don’t forget to have them sent to the Maine Golf before the application deadline.

All materials that need to be submitted in addition to the online application should be sent to scholarship@mesga.org.
