Evans Scholar Foundation and Chick Evans
Established by famed amateur golfer Charles “Chick” Evans Jr., the Evans Scholars Foundation provides full housing and tuition scholarships to deserving caddies across the country. For the 2014-15 academic year, 870 caddies are attending college on Evans Scholarships, and there are nearly 10,000 Evans Alumni. Most Scholars attend one of the 14 universities where the Foundation owns and operates a Scholarship House. The Evans Program is administered by the Western Golf Association and funded by contributions from more than 26,000 donors across the country, including many Evans Alumni, and by proceeds from the BMW Championship.

The WGA Caddie Academy is a seven-week program designed to provide caddie opportunities for young women who live far from a WGA-affiliated club – especially minorities and those who are economically disadvantaged. The program offers young women the opportunity to earn money, meet role models and learn invaluable life lessons through caddying. Participants caddie at clubs on Chicago’s North Shore and live in the Northwestern University Evans Scholarship House with female Evans Scholars as live-in counselors. Applicants must be high school freshmen and are evaluated on character and leadership, academic record, financial need and geographic location. Visit www.wgaesf.org/caddieacademy for more information.
