    The family of Dennis Rose is pleased to offer an annual scholarship to a high school senior

    who is a member of the BIJGA. The monetary scholarship will be awarded for the Fall semester of that school year. The purpose of this memorial scholarship is to recognize a recipient whose behavior and sportsmanship epitomizes and honors Dennis’ views on the game and how the game should influence a young player’s life. Dennis believed that golf was truly “A Gentleman's Game” and how you conduct yourself on the golf course should carry over to how you conduct yourself in life. As such, the recipient should be polite, helpful, honest, and display good sportsmanship at all times. The student awarded this scholarship must complete high school by June 30 and must be enrolled or planning to enroll as a full-time college student in the following school year.
