"You Betcha" Golf Scholarship

The "You Betcha" Golf Scholarship


The “You Betcha" Scholarship began in partnership between the Women’s Golf Association of Western Pennsylvania and the family of the late Dr. Ann Buck, a Past President of the WGAWP, as a way to provide participants in WGAWP Junior events with financial assistance for college. (The phrase "you betcha" was a favorite of Dr. Buck)  

The Scholarship Committee is pleased to offer assistance to qualified participants who have demonstrated exceptional merit, citizenship, academic achievement as well as service and commitment to the mission of the WGAWP. A $2,000 scholarship will be awarded based on the selection criteria for a maximum of 2 participants or as deemed appropriate by the Scholarship Committee.

  • Nominees must have at least a 3.0 GPA
  • Nominees must have a minimum of 15 hours of community service
