SCHOLARSHIPS & INTERNSHIPS
THE JOHN SHIPPEN ACHIEVEMENT SCHOLARSHIP was created in honor of John Shippen, Jr., the first American-born and the first Black professional golfer. Fifteen (15) $1,000 scholarships will be awarded to current students of color (high school junior through graduate student status) who have demonstrated leadership & service with a commitment to inclusion & diversity efforts on campus and in the community.
THE JOHN SHIPPEN will work with corporations, foundations and sponsors to co-create and co-fund internships that provide young adults of color across the nation a chance to turn their passions into fruitful, sustainable professional careers in sports.
