The acceptance period for EAGLE Applications has closed for this year. New applications will be accepted for high school sophomores beginning January 2016.
The EAGLE (Early Adventures in Golf for a Lifetime of Enjoyment) Program is a unique internship program that is a cooperative venture between Portland Parks & Recreation and public high schools located within the city of Portland to expose students to all aspects of golf course operation. Qualified students are paid an hourly wage, receive work credit hours, and have a mentor who monitors their progress. In addition, there are scholarship opportunities available from their involvement in our program. Since 1992, 57 students have successfully completed college on Evans Scholarships received through our EAGLE program.
A history of interest in the game of golf is not required. EAGLE students successfully completing the program become eligible to apply and compete for an Evans Foundation Scholarship in their senior year. This scholarship provides college tuition and a housing stipend at University of Oregon and may be renewed for up to four years, valued at $50,000.
* Students who attend high schools that are not located within the city of Portland can contact the following golf courses about their caddy programs: Columbia-Edgewater Country Club, The Oregon Golf Club, Oswego Lake Country Club, Portland Golf Club, Riverside Golf & Country Club, and Waverley Country Club.
