Grants & Scholarships

The core purpose of the Kentucky Golf Foundation is to positively impact Kentucky youth through golf.  As part of this core purpose we provide youth with financial assistance in the forms of grants and scholarships.  In partnership with Justin Thomas and family/friends of Gay Brewer Jr. here are the current opportunities available to youth.

Gay Brewer, Jr. Grant

The purpose of the Gay Brewer, Jr. Grant Program is to offer financial assistance to junior golfers from Kentucky with the ability to compete in junior golf competitions at the regional and national level that are limited in their ability to do so due to financial constraints.

Justin Thomas Grant

The purpose of the Justin Thomas Grant is to provide financial assistance to a Kentucky junior golfer whose past performance record demonstrates they have the potential to play at the collegiate level. This grant enables them to play a more robust national junior schedule with the goal to gain more exposure and earn a college golf scholarship.
