About the CDGA Foundation Scholarship
The CDGA Foundation Scholarship dates back to 1963, when the Chicago Area Unit of the United Veterans Services (UVS) Golf Swing Club began awarding scholarships to disabled veterans and/or the dependents of deceased or disabled veterans as part of its Scholarship Foundation. The Swing Club has aided a large number of students in their pursuit of higher education.
The Swing Club agreed to pass the scholarship program over to the CDGA Foundation in late 2018. The CDGA Foundation plans on continuing the Swing Club's admirable work in the years to come.
