2021 Ann Griffel Scholarship Application

This scholarship was named after the long time IWGA President, Ann Griffel. During her 23 year term, the Girls’ State Junior, Forever 39, State Wife-Husband and Senior Women’s Championships were started. Ann was inducted into the Iowa Golf Hall of Fame in 2006 to honor her contributions to the game.

The Iowa Golf Association Foundation (IGAF) was established to preserve the game and develop more programs to promote the future of golf in Iowa. The IGAF awards $2,000 Ann Griffel Scholarships to Iowa high school senior girls who intend to further their education at an Iowa institution of higher learning, whether a college, university or trade school.

Scholarships are awarded based on academic performance, extracurricular activities and leadership qualities, not on golf accomplishments or ability. Scholarships are awarded and recipients are selected solely based on the items submitted with this application. The decisions of the Ann Griffel Scholarship Committee are final.

Note: As a condition of accepting the scholarship, recipients must attend the Scholarship Awards Banquet on Friday, August 6, 2021 (DSM Area).

Applications must be received by 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, April 1, 2021.
