Scholarship

Earning College Scholarships

Rewarding the hard work of Southern Nevada Junior Golf Association members with scholarships for higher education has a long history in our organization.

From 1977 – 2015, the SNJGA awarded $450,000 in scholarship money between the Jim Colbert Scholarship, V. Massi Scholarship, Danny Gans Scholarship and other awards and we returned to award $17,500 in scholarships in 2020 in conjunction with the Bill Walters Las Vegas Golf Hall of Fame Scholarship.

2021 will be no different and the application process is getting under way.

Added in 2021 will also be the Walter M. Galyk Memorial Scholarship.

We look forward to hearing much more from each of the potential applicants.

We agree with Benjamin Franklin:

“An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.”
