About First Tee Scholars
Launched in 2001, First Tee Scholars is the first program of its kind in the United States. The program has grown since its inception; since 2012, there have been 20 First Tee Scholars at Georgetown College.
The First Tee Scholars at Georgetown College have an outstanding legacy of success. It starts with the¬†college‚Äôs Christian environment, which is welcoming and small enough to guarantee considerable¬†warmth and personal attention. Scholars learn from great teachers, and develop lifelong friendships with¬†other students who come from a richly diverse background and environment. And then, of course, there‚Äôs¬†golf and all the leadership and values that come from The First Tee program and the game itself.
Benefits of The First Tee Scholarship
In addition to the financial help a scholarship provides,¬†First Tee Scholars receive networking opportunities,¬†academic support and even assistance in finding a position¬†in their interest area. See where these First Tee Scholars are now:
