See How The Fund Impacts Scholars

The Ouimet Scholarship has positively impacted my life financially.

Maiah, Loyola University Maryland, 2023Green Hill Municipal Golf Course

Receiving the Ouimet Scholarship gave me an amazing opportunity to further my interest in my major at Bates College, and I was fortunate enough to receive an internship through the career portal.

Stephen, Bates College, 2022The Weston Golf Club

Receiving the Ouimet Scholarship has helped me a lot, especially with the cost of my education. The scholarship has reduced the financial impact of school by helping me afford my books, materials, and rent.

Jillian, Syracuse University, 2022William J Devine Golf Course at Franklin Park

Without the Ouimet Scholarship, I would not have been able to pursue my academics at Seton Hall University. The financial support has been integral to giving me a foundation to pursue higher education along with professional development.

Mohamed, Seton Hall University, 2023Winchester Country Club

Receiving the Ouimet Scholarship has positively impacted my life in terms of financial support and unique networking opportunities. The financial impact the Ouimet Scholarship has had on my college experience is nothing shy of tremendous, while the networking opportunities are comparable to no other.

Catherine, UMass Amherst, 2022George Wright Golf Course

Receiving the Ouimet Scholarship has had a significant impact by helping me afford my education. My future career as a Physician Associate requires five years of education which can be very expensive, and it is because of The Fund that I am able to continue my education and become a PA.

Summer, Saint Francis University, 2024The Ridge Club

The Ouimet Scholarship has significantly impacted me through its financial aid and career resource opportunities. Receiving the Ouimet Scholarship enabled me to focus more on schoolwork and less on paying for college, allowing me to make the dean’s list three consecutive semesters.

Travis, University of New Hampshire, 2022Salem Country Club

Being a Ouimet Scholar is much more than just a financial opportunity to save money for college. It is a community I can use as a way to broaden my network and feel proud to be a part of.

Daniel, Bentley University, 2023Oakley Country Club

Being a Ouimet Scholarship recipient has been immensely helpful in my life. Each year at Clark University, the administration has raised tuition, continuing to do so even during the economic recession caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, which has greatly affected my financial situation.

Alison, Clark University, 2022Belmont Country Club

The Francis Ouimet Scholarship has not only blessed me financially, but it has also benefited me in terms of career resources. The Fund helped me attain my current summer internship because one of the interviewers was both a Providence College Alumni and married to a former Ouimet Scholar.

Matthew, Providence College, 2023Dedham Country and Polo Club

The Ouimet Scholarship has holistically improved my college career. The financial assistance that is so kindly provided has allowed me to work less and study more, lifting a great weight off my shoulders.

Mary, Simmons University, 2022Pine Brook Country Club
