The Earl Woods Scholarship Program offers various higher education initiatives, ranging from town hall meetings, guest speakers, field trips, summer scholarships, career conferences and college prep meetings for families and students. The programs are geared for students in grades 5-12 and beyond.
The purpose of this program is to get young people believing that it is never too early to start thinking about the benefits of a college education. Workshops and presentations are offered on a variety of college-related topics for Tiger Woods Learning Center members and their families, as well as through other community partnerships.

For some students, becoming an Earl Woods Scholar begins during their junior year of high school. The College Access Network (CAN) is a program focused on high school juniors and seniors in the Anaheim Union High School District in Orange County, Calif. It is open to students who have demonstrated outstanding academic achievement (GPA and course load); significant financial need; and intent to attend a competitive four-year university anywhere in the United States. Students are nominated by their high school counselor or teachers for application into the program. The program is notable in that support is provided not only during junior and senior years of high school, but throughout four years of college life.
The emphasis of the CAN program is to educate students about the possibilities of attending small, private liberal-arts colleges, many of which are among the nation's best educational institutions. The program -- funded by the Draper Family Foundation -- is now in its third year and is a model the Earl Woods Scholarship Program plans to expand. For additional information, please click here.
