Founded in 1949, The Francis Ouimet Scholarship Fund is considered The Golf Charity of Massachusetts™.
The Ouimet Fund’s purpose is to help deserving young men and women, who have worked at golf courses in Massachusetts, obtain a college education. We provide need-based college scholarships, which are renewable and worth an average of $25,000 over the course of four years, with some students receiving as much as $60,000.
Since 1949, The Fund has awarded over $38 Million in scholarships to more than 6,000 deserving men and women. Recently, Ouimet Scholars have excelled in school, graduating at a 93% rate and achieving an 3.3 GPA average!
The Ouimet Fund is the largest independent scholarship fund in New England, and works to grow the legacy of Mr. Ouimet by growing the scholarship fund he loved so dearly.
The Francis Ouimet Scholarship Fund is committed to providing need-based scholarship aid to students who have demonstrated a strong work ethic by having completed at least two years of service to golf. The Ouimet Fund rewards accomplishment through the competitive, renewable award. The Fund is dedicated to providing the golfing community with an opportunity to “give back to golf” and society by assisting youth in furthering their education. The Fund also seeks to preserve the history of Francis Ouimet’s contributions to American golf.
