The R&A Greenkeeping Scholarship Programme was established to support high achieving students enrolled in professional turf management qualifications. The R&A has now produced a brochure which describes the programme, how it operates and how students can apply to become an R&A greenkeeping scholar. The brochure also outlines exclusive networking and continuing professional development opportunities which enhance industry exposure and employability. A number of former scholars now working in the golf industry are featured in the brochure.
Since the inception of this programme in 2004, The R&A has supported over 180 scholars from 20 different countries, equating to an investment of proceeds generated by The Open of over £0.6 million.
