This scholarship combines two scholarships: the Francis Ouimet Scholarship and the Chick Evans Scholarship. This scholarship awards four students from Massachusetts, who caddy, full tuition and housing at a college from the 24 partner universities. This scholarship included an essay on personal experience and why they deserve the scholarship for every applicant and interviews for the finalists that were held virtually and determined how deserving each person was. The scholarship is awarded to the applicants who meet the criteria for each organization. The applicant must also show a strong caddy record (at least two years), excellent academics, financial need, and outstanding character. This scholarship is valued at more than $125,000. 

So far 1,130 caddies are enrolled at the 24 partner universities. More than 12,040 caddies have graduated as Evans scholars since the program was founded. It was estimated that about 340 caddies will be awarded the scholarship across the country.

Ning has committed to Rutgers University and will receive full housing and tuition there. She will be able to play golf at the college’s golf course. Ning was awarded this scholarship in February 2024. Ning, Hayden Cusolito, Laila Baptiste, and Christian Sullivan were awarded this scholarship.
