LPGA Next Play Scholarship Application

The LPGA has designated five (5) scholarships for coaching engagements that consist of six (6) hour-long coaching sessions and on-going support. Coaching begins this Fall.
The Next Play team will select participants based on readiness for coaching as we see it demonstrated in your application. There are no right or wrong answers; we want to understand your needs, why you’re interested in coaching, and what you’d like to achieve as a result. If you’re interested in participating, do invest a bit of time and attention in thoughtfully completing your application.
Please complete and submit the following six questions (listed below), by 12pm ET, Monday, October 25, 2021. 

You can submit your answers via email to [email protected] directly in the body of the email, or, if you prefer, utilizing our PDF form for convenience.  Note: you will receive an email confirming receipt of your application within 24 hours. If you do not receive this email, please contact us.

We take player confidentiality very seriously and are committed to protecting your identity during the application process. All players will be notified of selection on Monday, November 1st. Even if you are not selected this time around, we believe in your potential and encourage you to talk with us about your options.

If you have any questions about The Next Play or want to learn more, we encourage you to please contact Bethany Dufour at [email protected] or 267.572.0277.
