Program Description: TG’s public Benefit Program will support efforts by non-profit entities that declare intent to use grant funding to improve student persistence in our access to postsecondary education. TG’s first priority is the primary beneficiaries of these efforts, either directly or indirectly, be students who are from low- to moderate-income families. Secondary populations of focus include students who are the first in their families to attend higher education and students from groups that are traditionally underrepresented in higher education. TG neither lends nor grants money to individuals through this program.
Grant Categories and priority areas:
1. Direct services to students and families
a. Retention/Persistence in postsecondary education
b. Access to postsecondary education
2. Education research
3. Organizational capacity building
