In 1989, with the Guidance and support of the U.S. trustees, a Fund was established in Canada for an exchange between the University of St. Andrews, Scotland and selected Canadian universities. The Canadian Jones Foundation was established by people who admired the timeless qualities of sportsmanship and character of Bobby Jones and who wanted to further internationalize a memorial to Bob Jones in Canada. The Canadian Jones Foundation operates as a registered charitable organization under the Canada Income Tax Act and issues tax receipts in January of each year for all donations received during the previous year.

Initially, the first student exchange was between Western University, London, Ontario and the University of St. Andrews, Scotland. Starting in 1996, Queen's University was added to the program in an exchange with St. Andrews. Jones scholarships are based on academic ability and personal qualities; golf skill is not a criterion.

Jones Scholarships are awarded for one year. Students winning the coveted awards spend a unique year living and studying in Canada or Scotland, further developing the transatlantic ties that were so important to Bobby Jones.

 

"To my generation and to all who remember his play, he will remain the greatest golfer of all time and it is inconceivable that in the foreseeable future another will arise to match his record. By his deportment through life and on the golf course, Jones set to all an example that should never be allowed to die."
