We currently have 54 students receiving a total of $47,500. The VGASF is a non-profit organization that receives its funding through contributions from individuals, businesses, golf organizations, Vermont VGA Member golf courses and its annual Scholarship Scramble golf event.  In addition we have a bag tag program each year that depicts a hole from the course where the Vermont Am is being conducted.  This year the Vt. Am. Is being hosted by Williston County Club.
