Minority golf scholarship.

Spending the summer as a golf caddy can pay off. Just ask the nine Chicago-area female high school seniors who earned a full college scholarship for, yes, caddying. The Western Golf Association's Caddie Academy gives young women, particularly minorities or those who are economically disadvantaged, an introduction to the golf world in the hopes to lure more women and minorities to the game.

The women spend seven weeks caddying at different golf clubs in Chicago but also receive mentoring advice and help with their ACTs. At the end of the program, the students are eligible for the Chick Evans Scholarship, which pays for their tuition and housing at the school of their choice.
