History

The GAMES Scholarship began in 2011 as part of the Augusta Sports Council’s annual G.A.M.E.S. Awards which was an annual program created to highlight outstanding amateur athletes who represented a broad spectrum of sports disciplines in the area.

To date, the Augusta Sports Council has awarded over $33,000 in college scholarships to 23 graduating high school student athletes in the Augusta community. 

In May, the ASC team surprised five $1,000 scholarships to local graduating high school student athletes! To see our past scholarship winners, click here.

Proceeds from the 2020 Augusta University Half Marathon, 10K & 5K event will directly benefit our annual GAMES Scholarship Fund!
