WHO WE ARE.
The Glen View Club Scholarship Foundation launched in 1997 to commemorate the Club's 100th year. Since then it has made more than 810 grants totaling more than $4,100,000 to Club caddies and staff to help them pay for their post-secondary education, thereby playing an impactful role in the lives of the young men and women who help deliver the Glen View experience.
WHAT WE DO.
The Foundation’s Board engages as active investors who seek returns in the form of post-secondary diplomas and employment. Glen View Scholars go through a rigorous process that includes assessments of job performance, academic achievement, career goals and personal character. The aim is to launch young men and women to a lifetime of enrichment and fulfilled aspirations through the gift of education.
College is not a one-size-fits-all proposition. Students don't arrive at higher learning armed with the same skills in articulation, organization, study habits, and collaboration. So the Foundation provides a variety of grants and support services to advance their college careers. The service portfolio includes:
• Outright scholarship grants.
• Incentive scholarship grants based on performance.
• Leadership grants to recognize outstanding leader skills.
• Tutoring resources to advance studies in core curricula.
• College Success Skills training.
• Reach Back programs for high school freshman.
• Voluntary member mentoring.
The results are often beyond calculation. Yes, Glen View Club Scholars advance with degrees to good jobs and professions: engineers, doctors, environmentalists, technology consultants, accountants, airline pilots. These are high value returns that Glen View Members produce by helping Scholars advance as citizens and producers. But there is no measure for the gratification of knowing that their help was the spark that ignited and propelled their ambition.
