In 1998, Texas Executive Women established the Jackie Greer Mentoring Scholarship, which provides scholarships for mentees graduating from high school to attend a university, junior college or trade school. As of 2008, we have awarded more than $270,000 in scholarships to nearly 150 of TEW's former mentees.
Scholarships will be awarded to graduating seniors planning to enroll in a community college, college or university, or a vocational or career education school acceptable to the TEW Mentoring Scholarship Committee. All scholarships must be claimed and funded no later than the end of the calendar year in which it is awarded.
