Georgian Court University will host its 23rd Annual Scholarship Golf and Classic on Monday May 7, 2018, at Deal Golf and Country Club. The Scholarship and Golf Classic is our most important fundraising event of the year, with proceeds funding scholarships that make the dream of an education possible for hundreds of students.

The robust nature of a GCU education has been recognized by U.S. News & World Report as one of the “Best Regional Colleges/Universities (North)” in 2018.  Additionally, Washington Monthly named GCU “Best Bang for the Buck” in 2017. This is an exciting time for the university, which has become a regional leader in higher education, uniquely poised to serve Central and South Jersey.

Funds raised at the Annual Scholarship and Golf Classic provide much-needed assistance to Georgian Court University students, 46% of whom come from households facing significant economic challenges. Over the years, the Scholarship and Golf Classic has helped to raise more than $2.5M in student scholarships, helping more than 700 students achieve their dreams of a college education. 

Below are the sponsorship opportunities avaiable for this year's outing. For more information please contact Gianna Verdoni, Manager of Special Events at 732.987.2206 or
