ROYAL AND ANCIENT GOLF BURSARY SCHEME

Each year the R&A invests more than £300,000 in student and university golf. Currently, the R&A supports golf programmes at fifteen universities and awards 100 individual foundation scholarships to players from all over the world.

BREAKDOWN OF AWARD

  • The centrepiece of the year is the annual R&A Foundation Scholars Tournament. The contest is held in St Andrews in April over 54 holes. The tournament offers the leading man a place on the European Palmer Cup team to face the USA, with the leading woman receiving a starting place at a Ladies European Tour event. The event carries World Amateur Golf Ranking points.
  • Minimum of £750 expenses
