The Chevron Langley Veteran’s Scholarship, sponsored by the Chevron Veteran’s Network, was established by the Northern California PGA Foundation to recognize and assist United States Veterans who plan to pursue post-secondary education.
Diversity and inclusion are cornerstones of both the Northern California PGA and Chevron’s corporate values. For the Northern California PGA, and the PGA of America, we are focused on embracing and leveraging diversity and inclusion with particular emphasis on education and training, workforce diversification, supplier inclusion, and community engagement. For Chevron, as core values, diversity and inclusion are critical to developing the talented, high-performing workforce needed for ongoing business success. The Chevron Way’s focus on people has helped establish a culture that attracts, develops and retains more diverse talent.
This Northern California PGA Foundation scholarship is part of Chevron’s Diversity Scholarship Program which helps provide students a way to pursue opportunities where financial need is a factor. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, age, gender, disability or national origin.
Renewable scholarships are offered each year for full-time undergraduate study at colleges and universities. While Chevron is investing in those students that align with our key disciplines, these scholarships are not a guarantee of employement at Chevron.

Selection of Recipients
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, honors, work experience, an essay, and an outside recommendation. Once scholarship recipients are selected, financial data is assessed to determine the amount of each award. Recognition of all scholarship recipients will be the same regardless of the award amount.
Selection of recipients is made by the NCPGA Foundation Scholarship Committee. All applicants agree to accept the decision of the program administrators as final.
Applicants will be notified by May whether or not they have been selected to receive an award. The Langley Veteran’s Scholarship Program Presented by Chevron Veteran’s Network is a competitive program; not all applicants will be selected as recipients.
Payment of Scholarships
The NCPGA Foundation processes scholarship payments. Checks are paid in U.S. dollars and are mailed to each recipient's home address. Payments are made in one installment no later than mid-September with a check payable to the school. The award may be used to pay for tuition, fees, books, supplies, or other related educational expenses. Please note that due to the impact that scholarship deferment requests are having on the scholarship budget, requests for scholarship deferments will not be approved unless there are extenuating circumstances.
Recipients are required to notify the Northern California PGA of any changes in address, school enrollment, or other relevant information and to supply complete transcripts when requested. The NCPGA Foundation reserves the right to review the conditions and procedures of this scholarship program and to make changes at any time, including termination of the program.
