On the Rock: Evans Scholars

Chris Kirk and Chris Kirk

The rock today bears the paint of the Evans Scholars. From the Northwestern chapter’s website:

The Evans Scholars Foundation administers the nation’s largest privately funded college scholarship program, providing full tuition and housing grants to deserving caddies. Since the first two Scholars enrolled at Northwestern University in 1930, over 8,500 young men and women have graduated from the program. This year, 820 Evans Scholars are enrolled at 19 universities across the country. At 14 of those universities the Evans Scholars Foundation owns and maintains an Evans Scholarship House where the Evans Scholars reside. Their tuition and housing grants are renewable for up to four years, representing a value from nearly $40,000 to over $150,000. While the program is national in scope, its focus is principally in the Midwest.
