While there are metafont versions out there, all TexGyre fonts are
distributed as opentype fonts. In the font settings dialogs, select to use
non-TeX fonts and then you'll see it.

Check it ;)

BTW, you can also try Michael Sharp's ScholaX, which is an extension of
TeXGyre Schola

This is also an opentype font. I briefly reviewed it in my blog
