Syngenta Support for GCSAA’s Legacy Awards Programme

Lawrence, Kansas, United States: The Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA) has awarded 20 college scholarships as part of its Legacy Awards programme.

To be eligible, applicants must be a child or grandchild of a GCSAA member. The programme is funded by GCSAA’s philanthropic organisation, the GCSAA Foundation, and supported by Syngenta. Each grant is for US$1,500.

“Beyond serving GCSAA’s members in their profession, we’re proud to extend our reach to their families by supporting their academic pursuits,” GCSAA CEO Rhett Evans said.

“The Legacy Awards help relieve some of the financial burden of higher education costs for our members’ families, thanks to the partnership of the GCSAA Foundation and Syngenta.”

The awards are based on academic achievement, community involvement, extra-curricular activities and leadership skills. Applicants must be enrolled full time at an accredited institution of higher learning, or for high school seniors, accepted at such an institution for the next academic year.

“Syngenta is dedicated to providing higher education via the Legacy Awards to further support GCSAA members and their family,” said Stephanie Schwenke, Turf Marketing Manager for Syngenta an Executive Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.

“Providing scholarships for students and grandchildren of association members is one way we can express our gratitude for the vital role superintendents play in sustaining the golf industry,” she added.
