TG's Charley Wootan Grant Program
Since 2000, TG has been proud to support a grant program designed to provide help to students pursuing a higher education and who have financial need. For the 2013-14 academic year, TG's Charley Wootan Grant program will award grants totaling $5 million to students who are Texas residents. Grants will be split between students going to 2-year colleges or vocational schools and students enrolled at 4-year universities.
The application period has ended for the 2013-2014 academic year. During July, provisional recipients only will be mailed a notification letter. For more information about our selection and notification process, see our Frequently Asked Questions.
