Passport Scholars

Initiative to help high school girls set and achieve goals for their academic and life journeys

Informing girls' academic & life journey

Our Passport Scholars initiative helps high school girls set and achieve goals for their academic and life journey. In addition to the summer experiences, Passport Scholars helps girls set and achieve long-term goals and offers one-on-one mentoring and college counseling. Passport Scholars is a partnership between PEF, the Hamilton County Schools, and the Community Foundation of Greater Chattanooga with support from the Weldon F. Osborne Foundation and Kitty & Hacker Caldwell.
