About the Charley Wootan Grant Program
In 2000, TG established a program to provide assistance to students who have difficulties pursuing their higher education dreams because of financial need. In 2001, the TG Board of Directors voted to expand and rename the program to honor the memory of the former Chairperson of the TG Board of Directors, Dr. Charley V. Wootan, in recognition of his generous contributions and service to the state of Texas and the nation.
Dr. Wootan served on TG’s Board of Directors for the six years prior to his death in March 2001. His accomplishments, lifetime contributions, and outstanding character had a profound impact on education and the lives of many students and their families. As a tribute to Dr. Wootan, TG is proud to extend his legacy to impact students nationwide.
The Charley Wootan Grant Program has since its inception awarded nearly $30 million to students nationwide, helping thousands of Wootan Grant recipients achieve their postsecondary education goals.
