BGG Clemson 2019 Summer Application Open

Black Girls Golf  | Published on 2/5/2019

ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR 2019 BLACK GIRLS GOLF CLEMSON SUMMER SCHOLARS PROGRAM

For the third year, Clemson University and The Black Girls Foundation for Diversity & Inclusion have partnered to offer African American girls an opportunity to participate in a special one week camp. This unique experience is open to African American girls who are interested in a career in golf. 

Throughout the week students will participate in classroom activities that will give them first-hand knowledge of what it feels like to be a Clemson PGA Professional Golf Management student. Campers will also receive hands-on golf instruction designed to improve their golf ability. However, the most rewarding part of this Summer camp experience is connecting and sharing experiences with other girls just like them. 
Many of our students share the experience of being the only African American girl on their golf team. Having the unique opportunity to connect and share an experience with other girls who can relate to you is very special and we've seen dramatic changes in the students over the week. "Having a safe space matters and facilitates growth and confidence", says Tiffany Fitzgerald the founder of Black Girls Golf.

If you know an African American or Latina junior golfer who will be at least 14 by the time of the camp, please have her apply to this unique program. We are looking forward to another awesome Summer with our junior golfers. 

APPLICATION DEADLINE EXTENDED - APPLY TODAY.


Please share this opportunity with the junior golfers in your network. Applicants do not have to be members of BGG to apply.
