PTF Given Matching Challenge for Academic  Scholarship Program


The family of Karl Hilberg has challenged the PTF to bring the endowment for the academic scholarship program for aspiring collegiate polo players up to $100,000. The Hilberg family will donate $20,000 once the PTF has $80,000 in a scholarship endowment.  Currently the fund has $38,000, so $42,000 needs to be raised to receive the match.   The academic scholarship program entering its fourth year was created to encourage and promote the attainment of higher education goals based on evidence of a high level of academic achievement during high school or college.  In addition to meeting a high academic standard, scholars are required to participate in the collegiate polo club at the school they are attending.  These scholarships are also based on financial need . 


Scholarship funding comes from donations made directly to the PTF scholarship fund.  Those interested in supporting this fund should contact the PTF office: phone – 888-PTF-POLO (783-7656); email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
