Donations from members of Trans-Miss member clubs and friends of the Trans are the lifeblood of the Trans-Miss Turf Scholarship Fund. Your donations create much of the energy that goes towards our renowned Turf Scholarship Program that was inaugurated in 1953. Approximately 1,500 student scholars have benefited from your generous contributions which have made it possible for them to pursue degrees in Turf Science. Perhaps you have met one of our former scholars on your own course or have seen their work on a course nearby or during your travels. In any case these young men and women depend on you and the Trans-Mississippi Turf Scholarship Fund to make their dreams of becoming the golf course superintendents of tomorrow a reality.
What more vital asset is there at a golf club than the care and maintenance of its turf and grounds?
Contributions to the Trans-Miss Turf Scholarship Fund are fully tax deductible. But more importantly with the rapidly increasing costs of education you are ensuring that the highest standards of our nationís golf courses are maintained by the education of its future caretakers through the assistance provided by the Trans. This is truly an investment in our future!
Many of these young men and womenís education in turf science would not be possible without your contributions. The Trans gives $90,000 per year in grants to 40 turf scholars pursuing careers as golf course superintendents at 21 major universities across the country.
The Trans has embarked on a campaign to raise our grants to $150,000 per year to help fill the financial needs of these young men and women pursuing careers as golf course superintendents and we canít do it without your help.
So please, help the Trans secure the future of our nationís golf course superintendents by contributing today!
