Schreiner University Receives $116,000 Grant to Advance College Opportunity and Student Success

Kerrville, Texas — TG’s Public Benefit Grant Program, a philanthropic initiative of TG, has awarded $116,000 to Schreiner University to help fund academic support programs and student scholarships. This effort will lead to greater student success in preparing for and earning a college degree.

To qualify for the award, Schreiner declared its intent to use grant funding to continue to improve access to higher education opportunities and to strengthen student support programs with a special emphasis on the needs of rural students from low- to moderate-income families.

“Higher education remains a vital portal to the American dream and the cornerstone of meaningful community development,” said Dr. Tim Summerlin, president of Schreiner University. “We are committed to being an institution of opportunity uniquely suited to serve the needs of Central Texas and are excited that TG has chosen to support our efforts.”

“Our nation’s future depends on our ability to inspire students to achieve all that they’re capable of accomplishing,” said Sue McMillin, president and CEO of TG, a Texas-based, non-profit corporation that provides federal student loan guarantees to help ensure access to higher education for millions of students across the country each year. “By providing funds for the Schreiner Student Success program, we’re pleased that TG can help change the future for individual students, families, and society as a whole.”

Schreiner University was one of 46 nonprofit organizations selected for funding. Overall, TG awarded more than $5.2 million for projects in 2007-2008.
