Junior Golf Scholarships

Shining Light Scholarship for Youth

The St Louis Junior Invitational believes the opportunity for junior golfers to participate in a major junior golf championship should not be driven by their ability to overcome financial hardships to make this dream happen. Many junior golfers, young men and young ladies age 14-18, have a dream of earning a college degree, too.  In most cases, they also share a dream of playing college golf. 
The design of the St Louis Junior Invitational was not only to build the best junior golf championship nationally, it was also to afford those players the opportunity to compete at a very low cost, where the investment was attainable by any young player, from any socio-economic background. For this reason, the cost of entry is roughly half of similar events across the USA.  In addition, and as important, our goal is to have 45+ college coaches onsite each year, watching our players compete in our championship.  Our hope is that exposure to college coaches will increase the opportunity of realizing a dream of being a college student, and possibly a college golfer.
The St Louis Junior Invitational GO FUND ME Team  hopes to identify junior golfers who love golf, have the skill and passion to perform at a high level, but whose families are in difficult financial situations.  Our goal is to provide a number of players, each year, free entry into the championship, and also subsidize their travel costs, too, so no player is turned away because of financial strain.  
Many great things can be achieved by providing junior golfers an open door to an opportunity that not only will allow them to participate in a major junior golf championship, but one that may lead to a college degree, and a better future!
Although no donation is too small, conversely, no donation is too large! 
Our goal, annually, is to award (5) five scholarships to public golf course players that are in need of financial assistance, and continue to provide entry fees for all other players that are highly affordable.  To help promote life changing opportunities for our youth, simply click on the GO FUND ME link on this page.  All donations are tax deductible!
Your support is greatly needed, and appreciated!
