The Pat Fletcher Golf Foundation Scholarships

The Pat Fletcher Scholarship Foundation is a charitable organization that grants post-secondary scholarships to deserving young Canadians who show an ability as golfers. And while the Foundation focuses its efforts on reaching out to young people with an interest and ability in golf, the Foundation does not exist to only empower young golfers to become better golfers. The Foundation exists to empower young golfers to become better people – champions of their generation.

By awarding scholarships to deserving young Canadians, our mission is to give young people the education they need to embrace their future with knowledge, ambition and leadership. In helping them to obtain a university degree, we are giving them the tools they need to use the life lessons they learned through golf to make a difference in the world around them.

Since the foundation’s inception in 1985, we have awarded 393 scholarships to young Canadian golfers, helping them to reach their highest potential, not only in golf, but in life.  And, with the help of friends and supporters such as you, we look forward to building on that number. We encourage you to visit our website at www.patfletcher.com to learn more about the history of the Foundation and our programs.

You will find attached an advertisement we have put together to build awareness of our Foundation and its scholarships.  It would be greatly appreciated if you could help us by uploading this pdf onto your website; using it through your social media; or simply by sending it directly to young golfers whom you feel could benefit from such a scholarship. 

The scholarship application form is available online on our website.  The deadline for applications is May 31, 2016 and scholarships will be awarded by August 1, 2016.
