The Tiger Woods Foundation is excited to extend the opportunity and invite your high school seniors to apply for the 2017-2018 Earl Woods Scholarship. The Earl Woods Scholar Program was created in 2006 to honor the vision and spirit of Earl Woods, Tiger’s father and mentor, to continue his legacy of caring and sharing. The scholarship is open to graduating high school seniors of select schools in the New York City area with a minimum 3.0 GPA that have plans to enroll full-time in an accredited four-year university in the United States in the upcoming academic year. Successful candidates will be selected on the basis of academic achievement, demonstrated financial need and a proven commitment to community service.
At the Tiger Woods Foundation, we believe every child deserves an opportunity to pursue a college education. We have humble beginnings and a simple, universal vision: we give students in need the right resources to ensure lifelong success in school, their communities and the working world. We don’t allow our students to exist with the labels or restrictions or stigmas. Instead, we empower them to exceed any and all expectations. The Earl Woods Scholar Program is an unparalleled network providing admissions counseling, financial assistance, dedicated mentors, specialized internships, career development and vital workshops. Receiving individualized support, our bright young scholars, are succeeding at universities such as Georgetown, Kalamazoo, UCLA, Wabash, NYU and Harvard.
Please distribute these applications to students who you believe are eligible to apply for the scholarship.
