The First Tee Scholars Program
The Scholars Program is a distinction awarded to junior golfers of The First Tee who excel in academics, leadership, character development, and chapter and community involvement.
In addition, through the national The First Tee organization, The First Tee of South Central Wisconsin has college financial assistance opportunities for participants in The First Tee Life Skills Experience™. As participants reach levels of certification, they are eligible to apply for college financial assistance. We hope that many participants from The First Tee of South Central Wisconsin will benefit from these opportunities.
