The scholarship recognizes students in underserved populations seeking a career in golf course and turfgrass management.

The award is named in honor of Larry Powell, a 49-year GCSAA member and golf course superintendent at Clearview Golf Course in Canton, Ohio. Powell’s father, Bill, opened Clearview GC in 1948. The integrated course was the first and only course to be designed, constructed and owned by an African American. Bill and Larry were the first African-American father-son members in GCSAA history.

The first Larry Powell Scholarship was awarded in January to Travis Campbell, a two-year GCSAA member who is now assistant superintendent at Old Barnwell Golf Club in Aiken, S.C.
