The Missouri Women’s Golf Education Association (MWGEA) is very committed to the growth of women’s golf and education. However the current situation with the COVID-19 Virus has taken a different path for 2020. We are currently reviewing our financial health and until this difficult time has passed we have decided to postpone awarding any scholarships. When we are confident with the MWGEA’s ability to move forward we will notify pending applicants. If you have any questions please contact Debbie Ferguson by email.
