The European Club Education Foundation (ECEF), the education bursary arm of CMAE, and The R&A are launching five bursaries for aspiring and existing golf club managers from ethnically diverse backgrounds each year for the next five years.
The bursaries are funded by The R&A as part of its commitment to increase the ethnic diversity of those working in the golf industry. Research conducted by The R&A among those from ethnically diverse communities has suggested that role models are key to demonstrating that golf is open to all, not only as a participant in the sport but as a professional career opportunity.
The recipients of the bursaries will each have place on the CMAE’s successful Management Development Education Programme (MDP)
The bursaries start with a place on MDP 1, which covers the remit of operational skills required to run a Club, with the hope that participants will then progress through the MDP pathway to gain the Club Management Diploma (CMDip), seen as the club industry’s benchmark management qualification.
The Joe Perdue bursary is awarded annually to current and aspiring club managers wishing to attend any of CMAE’s MDP courses or the World Conference
Applications for this bursary are currently closed. Make sure you are signed up to our mailing list to receive details of all ECEF bursary opportunities when they open.
