Sponsor details

"For a number of years now, I have envisaged creating a structure that will allow me to assist various youth groups that need help. As I have travelled the world playing professional golf and experiencing many favourable situations, it has also become apparent to me just how many people are suffering, disadvantaged and lacking opportunity.

I was fortunate to be offered the opportunity of following my chosen career path but not everyone has that fortune. I believe that the giving of an opportunity may be one of the greatest gifts of all, be that an opportunity for a single experience to a sick child, to a chance to follow a dream that may otherwise be unattainable.

In line with our focus of supporting disadvantaged and underprivileged Australian youth, we are very pleased to offer The Adam Scott Foundation Scholarship.

The Adam Scott Foundation is extremely pleased to be able to provide the opportunity of undertaking tertiary education for a successful applicant to achieve their desired objectives."
