The Thunderbird Silver Belle Grant Provides Financial Assistance to Young Female Golfers
Young girls who have the ability to play in the Joanne Winter Arizona Silver Belle Championship, yet not the financial resources, may receive aid
When Joanne Winter started the Arizona Silver Belle Championship for girls in 1971, she wanted a venue for girls to compete, polish their skills and gain local, state and national exposure. The Arizona Silver Belle has grown into one of the premier golf tournaments in the country for girls aged 24 and under.
In an effort to continue this opportunity, The Thunderbird Foundation in Phoenix has graciously stepped forward to sponsor a scholarship focusing on those qualified golfers that have financial hardships which might otherwise prevent them from participating. The Thunderbird Silver Belle Scholarship allows aspiring young golfers to benefit from national exposure regardless of their financial constraints. This scholarship grant helps fulfill Arizona Silver Belle’s mission of providing young girls the opportunity to compete on a national level and gain recognition for college golf scholarships.
After you have been accepted into the Championship, complete the Grant form at the right and submit along with the necessary documents. No grants will be reviewed prior to the player's acceptance into the tournament. Once the application has been received, the Scholarship Committee will notify the players that qualify for the program. Scholarship amounts cover only the cost of the entry fee, payable by check at the Championship registration.
