TG announces $5 million grant program for qualified students to help pay for college


When it comes to paying for college, every dollar counts. For this reason, TG — the company that brings you Counselors Network — is proud to announce the availability of the 2013-14 Charley Wootan Grant.

As part of its commitment to help students pay for a postsecondary education, TG has provided $5 million to its Charley Wootan Grant Program for the 2013-2014 academic year. TG's Board of Directors allocated $5 million to Texas students; one-half will be awarded to students enrolled at 4-year institutions, with the other half allocated to those attending 2-year institutions. The grants are available to students pursuing undergraduate degrees or enrolled in teacher certification programs.

Texas students may submit an application beginning this Wednesday, April 17, 2013. Grants are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, so it's important to get for your students to get their applications in as early as possible.

Students can review requirements for the grant and apply at www.AIE.org/Charley-Wootan-Grant/.

Questions about the program can be directed to the TG Charley Wootan Grant Program manager by email at Wootan@Scholarshipamerica.org, or by phone at (800) 537-4180.
