Angela Uzielli Bursaries
Girl golfers who wish to continue to develop their game while studying at college or university are invited to apply for an Angela Uzielli Bursary.
The awards are made in memory of Angela Uzielli, the great English amateur who was a British champion, a Curtis Cup player and who won both the English championship and the British senior title in the same year.
The founding capital was provided by Hugh and Catherine Stevenson, friends of the Uzielli family. It is intended that the income from the capital will fund up to four bursaries at any one time, of up to £1250 - £1500 each per annum.
The bursaries, for educational expenses, will be awarded to promising girl golfers who wish to further their education at university or college, within the British Isles, after school academic year 12, and at the same time continue to develop their golfing skills. They should be of English nationality by birth or have either parent of English nationality, or have been resident in England for the last two years. The awards will be administered through the EWGA Trust.
The Bursaries will continue for the duration of their academic course. However, they will be reviewed annually and the students will need to show that their enthusiasm and commitment to their golf have been satisfactory before the next year's funds are released.
Application forms can be downloaded, they can be found at the top of this page, and should be submitted by 30 September in the year of entry to: The EWGA Trust, England Golf, The National Golf Centre, Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire LN10 6PU
Applications must include a recommendation and confidential report on the applicant from the appropriate county officials. These will then be submitted to the EWGA Trust Management Committee who, in consultation with Mr John Uzielli, will make the final decision on the granting of the Bursary.
The annual review procedure will require the recipients to provide a statement of their golfing and academic progress to the EWGA Trust Management Committee before 31 July of each year.
The Bellamy Bursaries
In 2005 the EWGA Trust received a legacy of £39,000 from the estate of Mrs Lena Marie Lauga Bellamy, whose father, Arnaud Massey, was the first overseas player to win The Open championship.
Mrs Bellamy was a keen golfer and, although she did not leave a valid Will, the Court of Protection agreed that her estate should be divided between various charities reflecting her interests.
Her legacy to the EWGA Trust will fund two Bellamy Bursary awards, each of up to £1500 per academic year. They will be made to English female golfers, irrespective of age or ethnicity, studying a golf-related subject at a college of higher or further education. Courses could include golf course management, turf management, greenkeeping, horticulture or sports management, among other subjects.
The Conditions of the award are as follows:
The bursaries are provided for students with formal offer places on courses in related subjects.
Alternatively applicants must be actively participating in a course and must be able to provide support for their application from their Course Tutor.
The award year will be from 1 October to 30 September and applications must be made by the 1 September and returned to: The EWGA Trust, England Golf, The National Golf Centre, Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire LN10 6PU. An application form can found at the top of this page for download.
Applications for a Bursary are open to all English female golfers who fulfil the above criteria, irrespective of age or ethnicity.
In general, a Bursary may be used for educational purposes, including tuition fees, books, room and board.
Annually each bursar must show that her enthusiasm and commitment to her golf have been satisfactory before the next year's funds are released.
