Program Description

Our programs break the cycle of poverty through college-access opportunities for low-income students. At Tiger Woods Learning Centers across the country, scholars in grades 5-12 are immersed in an interactive STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) curriculum. Here, they make the connection between school and career, while planning a road map to college.

Tailored to the needs of the first-generation scholar, the Earl Woods Scholarship Program provides college scholarships coupled with an unyielding support system. Through dedicated mentors, professional development workshops, internships and staff support, our one-to-one philosophy ensures 100 percent success of our students in college and beyond.

The flagship Tiger Woods Learning Center was launched in Anaheim, California, in February 2006. Since its inception, the 35,000 square-foot education facility has reached students through its hands-on classes -- ranging from forensic science and aerospace to robotics, biotechnology, video production and graphic design.
