The Pat Fletcher Foundation, which provides financial assistance to young Canadian students on their journey to obtaining a university degree, announced today the awarding of 25 new scholarships from across Canada.
“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 the Mint Green Group.
“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,” he added.
Since establishing the foundation in 1985, the Pat Fletcher Foundation has awarded 565 scholarships, for a total of $800,000 to young Canadian golfers, offering them the opportunity to develop and reach their highest potential.
The scholarship recipients include students from every province, who go on to pursue their educations 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 Ted Fletcher, who continues to administer the Foundation, along with a board of trustees.
