In keeping with tradition at events he hosts, Tiger Woods quickly donated his first-place, $1.2 million check to the Tiger Woods Foundation. Woods has donated his winnings from this event to the Foundation each year of its 13-year history. Woods' winnings along with event proceeds benefit TWF's college-access programs, which provide underserved youth with a shot at college. Designed to break through a culture of low expectations, TWF's college-access programs reach young people in all stages of academic life.
For scholars in grades 5-12, the Tiger Woods Learning Centers provide hands-on experiences in science, technology, engineering and math coupled with college preparation workshops to create a unique environment focused on college and careers. The Earl Woods Scholarship Program is an unparalleled network, providing admissions counseling, college scholarships, dedicated mentors, specialized internships and vital workshops. Receiving individualized support, our bright young scholars are succeeding at prestigious universities such as Georgetown, USC, UC Berkeley, UCLA and Harvard.
