2021 BMW of Tyler Patriot Golf Classic

UT Tyler University Advancement

Since 1986, UT Tyler has hosted the Patriot Classic, one of the largest annual fundraisers benefiting UT Tyler student scholarships at its campuses in Tyler, Longview, Palestine, and Houston. Thanks to alumni, individuals and businesses who donate to the Classic, UT Tyler has raised more than $2 million for the PGC student scholarship endowment.

Each year, two deserving students are selected to receive a full scholarship. Along with our strong focus on scholarships, the BMW of Tyler Patriot Golf Classic is also a great platform to highlight our students and share the Patriot story. We are excited to have students helping host the 2021 Classic! In addition to the two full scholarships being awarded at least 20 students will receive a $1,000 current use scholarship for the 2021-2022 academic school year. 

We hope you will partner with us and support out Patriot students by becoming a sponsor!
