The Brunson Invitational Golf Scholarship Fund’s vision is to financially assist college students who are struggling in their pursuit of a college degree.
The Brunson Invitational Golf Scholarship Fund was founded in 2000 by Rodney L Brunson. Mr. Brunson created the organization after seeing financially challenged college students struggle to obtain their college degree due to lack of resources and scholarship opportunities. Mr. Brunson and other avid golfers who love the game decided to make a difference. As former students and athletes, we understand the struggle that these students go through. We inspired our fellow golfing peers and other classmates to have a tournament during the North Carolina A & T State University’s Annual Homecoming weekend.
