TWU receives state college access grant


DENTON — Texas Woman’s University can now deliver the message that college is accessible to more high school students in North Texas thanks to a grant from the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB).

TWU will use the $59,772 College Access Challenge Grant to partner with Girls Inc. of Metropolitan Dallas to create a college-going culture among the girls served by the organization.

“These funds will further enable us to help even more students in our community realize the dream of attending college,” said Monica Mendez-Grant, associate vice-president for student life.
The university will use members of the TWU G-Force and its Mobile Go Center to provide information and assistance about college opportunities at the four Dallas Girls Inc. locations.  Workshops and activities at the TWU Denton campus also are planned.

Members of the TWU G-Force are first-generation college students who mentor other students, participate in college enrollment workshops and help to staff the TWU Mobile Go Center and TWU Go Centers in area schools.  A Go Center is a physical space in a school that offers students admission and financial aid application assistance and other information to encourage greater participation in higher education by potential first-generation college students. 

TWU has the largest G-Force and Go Center program in the state.  For more information, visit www.twu.edu/o-sl/intercultural/GoCenter.html.
