The Evans Scholars Foundation
All proceeds from the BMW Championship will benefit the Evans Scholars Foundation and its mission of awarding full tuition and housing college scholarships to caddies. Since 2007, the BMW Championship has contributed more than $40 million to fund caddie scholarships.
Founded in 1930 by the Western Golf Association and legendary amateur golfer Charles "Chick" Evans Jr., the Evans Scholars Foundation is the nation's largest scholarship program for youth caddies. This year, a record 1,100 Evans Scholars are enrolled in 22 leading universities nationwide.
To earn the Evans Scholarship, candidates must have outstanding records of academics and caddying, as well as character/leadership and financial need. Forty percent of all Evans Scholars are first-generation college students.
Evans Scholars are known for their academic excellence, graduating at a rate of 95 percent and maintaining a cumulative 3.3 GPA.
