The McDonough Foundation is a volunteer organization whose sole mission is to solicit monies on an annual basis for the purpose of awarding four-year college scholarships to young men and women, employed at New Hampshire golf courses, who are attending colleges and universities of their choice. The Foundation is a not-for profit organization. Its Employer Identification Number is 02-6012491 and copies of its 501(c) 3 and W-9 are available upon request.
Any student employee of a New Hampshire golf course or club, including pro shop, grounds, wait, kitchen & office staff, may be eligible for scholarship. Candidates should demonstrate promise of academic success, as well as require financial assistance. Once awarded, a McDonough Scholarship may be renewed each year for a total of four years. Annual grants are renewable, upon application, depending upon annual maintenance of academic standards and the continued need for financial aid. All candidates must be recommended by the golf club where they are in at least their second year of employment.
