The Solution Partners Scholarship Program is supported by an annual golf tournament first held in 1990. Since then, 154 students have received financial assistance from AHFA to help them attend a university, community college or technical school. Parents of the scholarship recipients represent 68 different AHFA member companies.

The 2024 Solution Partners Education Golf Tournament is slated for September 25 at Lake Hickory Country Club’s Catawba Springs Course in Hickory, North Carolina. The shotgun start is at noon.
