The Matching Fund Program was created in 2001 to further aid our caddie recipients attending institutions of higher learning. Thirty-six schools have agreed to match up to a specific amount of a Platt Caddie Scholarship to assist students in meeting their financial need. We thank Westminster College, Penn State-Abington, Millersville University, and Elizabethtown College, on becoming our newest program participants.
As a result of the program, 33 caddie-scholars were awarded an additional $45,500 from their academic institutions in the 2016-17 academic year. The following schools are listed according to the amount they have agreed to match.
