In 2008, Pepsi Little People’s established its Scholarship Program, designed to offer scholarships to play in the Pepsi Little People’s Golf Championships to boys and girls who would not otherwise have the opportunity to participate in an international junior golf event.
Scholarships up to $1000 for an individual are awarded on the basis of a complete profile, including academic achievement, extra-curricular activities, civic or volunteer programs and family financial need.
Since its inception in 2008, Little People’s has awarded scholarships to 46 players.
In 2018, Pepsi Little People’s established the Maureen J. Garrity Scholarship for Women, in honor of Maureen Garrity, a long-time supporter and volunteer for Little People’s. This merit scholarship was established to support the education of women who participate in Little People’s, and is open to any female high school junior or senior graduating in 2021 or 2022. Two winners were named in 2019 and three in 2020.
