About Evans Scholars Foundation
As the nation’s largest scholarship program for caddies, the Evans Scholars Foundations has helped thousands of hardworking young men and women get to college since 1930. The Evans Scholars Program addresses the barriers to college graduation faced by students and prepares them for a lifetime of success.
Inspire11 has partnered with the Evans Scholars Foundation for over 5 years but our passion for the mission began much earlier. Inspire11’s CEO and Founder, Alban Mehmeti, is an Evans Scholar. Alban and his family came to the U.S. in 1998 as refugees from Kosovo. Though they faced great opportunity, the challenges of an immigrant family in the U.S still remained, including limited financial means. Alban was able to attend Indiana University Bloomington on a full scholarship with the support of the Evans Scholars Foundation.
Now, Inspire11 provides current Evan Scholars with tools, tactics and strategies to better prepare them for their career opportunities and has committed to putting 40 undergraduates through college.
