Scholarships

Junior Scholarship Program

Since its inception in 1964, the membership of the Professional Golfers’ Association of Alberta has experienced steady growth. This growth has stemmed from a commitment by the Association to improve its status within each of its communities.

One of the main focuses of the PGA of Alberta has been supporting Junior Golf. Alberta Golf Professionals use their expertise to create, organize and facilitate junior-oriented events. The Scholarship Program is another step in the overall development of our current programming.

The mission of the PGA of Alberta is to provide junior golfers from around the province the opportunity to be recognized for their outstanding achievements, while promoting and providing access to continued education. This program has presented over 60 scholarships since 1998.
