Golfing for Scholarships

22nd Annual Hispanic Scholarship Golf Tournament Set for April 24

April 7, 2009

More than 450 students have received scholarships to attend Cal State Fullerton, thanks to the university's Annual Hispanic Scholarship Tournament.

The tournament, now in its 22nd year, has raised more than $800,000 for the university's Future Scholars Program, which awards $1,000 scholarships to disadvantaged students who demonstrate strong academic achievement.

“Paying for a college education continues to be challenging,” said Silas H. Abrego, associate vice president for student affairs. “The cost of higher education has increased rapidly, but the family median income has not kept pace with this rate. And, affordability still is a concern for low-income students. The golf tournament is one way we support these students.”

This year's tournament is set for April 24 at Black Gold Golf Club in Yorba Linda. Cost is $250 per person to participate. Sponsorships are available for $1,000 for a foursome, including lunch and dinner, to $10,000 for Platinum status. Platinum sponsors include two foursomes, recognition in various formats, eight tickets to Cal State Fullerton's 2010 Front & Center concert, lunch and dinner.

Lunch will feature a performance by the Mariachi Divas and dinner will include an auction, award ceremony and drawing. Check-in is at 9:30 a.m., lunch is at 11:30 a.m., golfing starts at 12:30 p.m. and dinner is at 6 p.m.
