The Scripps Howard Foundation. 

I still remember when I was in college, and I got the letter from them telling me I was to be the recipient of a journalism award that included a scholarship. 
Likewise, there are 30 turf students out there who just had a similar experience courtesy of Jacobsen.
From Jacobsen’s press release: 
Jacobsen recently awarded over 30 college students in turfgrass management programs with $500 scholarships. Recipients were notified by Jacobsen on July 1, 2012.

Candidates from across the United States and Canada submitted essays and professor recommendations for consideration. The final list included students from 23 different schools, including large universities like The Ohio State University, Colorado State University and Kansas State University to smaller schools like Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College in Georgia and Kwantlen Polytechnic University in British Columbia, Canada. Review the full list of turfgrass scholarship recipients.

“Your scholarship contribution is helping me make my goals more achievable,” said Darrell Michael, senior at Nebraska. “Going into my last year at college, I will be able to finish off my college career on the right foot.”

“These young men and women represent the future of our industry and it is critical that we support these students along the way,” said David Withers, President of Jacobsen. “Awarding scholarships is just one of the ways Jacobsen invests in the industry that has supported our company for so many years.”

…And that was surely the first blog post ever to link to both the Scripps Foundation and Ice Cube’s “It Was a Good Day” video. Beware of the language in that one… that’s the unedited version.
I’m sure right now Scripps is wondering about where their scholarship money went…
Oh yeah, Ice Cube’s Impala? I’ve got the same year, except mine’s not an SS and it’s a hard top. It’s baby blue with a white top. I’ve had it since I was 16, it was my first car. Someday I’ll figure out how to get a photo of it in Golfdom
