The Pat Fletcher Foundation has announced the awarding of 20 new scholarships to students from across Canada.
The purpose of the scholarships is to provide financial assistance to deserving young Canadian students on their journey to obtaining a university degree.
“We are so proud of this year’s recipients. They demonstrated leadership and character in their submissions and we wish them the best of luck as they head back to university and college this fall,” said Ted Fletcher, founder and chairman of Mint Green.
“These are outstanding young people – hard-working, well-rounded leaders in their communities. They share our desire of making a difference and we are proud to have played a small role in helping to shape their future,” added Fletcher.
Since it was established in 1985, the Pat Fletcher Foundation has awarded a total of 588 scholarships to young Canadian golfers.
The scholarship recipients include students from every province in Canada who go on to pursue their education at top schools both in Canada and the U.S.
“While my father was always very passionate about the sport of golf, he was equally passionate about the importance of education. He took a genuine interest in working with junior golfers to help them reach their full potential, both on and off the golf course,” said Fletcher, who continues to administer the foundation, along with a board of trustees.
