Passports Tatted Global Access Grant

Untitled design-11.png

In an effort to inspire men and women of color to travel internationally and for those who want to pursue personal and intellectual growth through international experiences, we have created the Passports Tatted Global Access Grant which is intended to support the cost of passport application fees for first time applicants who are undergraduate students who plan to travel abroad.  

Passports Tatted provides grants of up to $145.00, an amount intended to equal the application cost for a United States Passport, to students in their Junior or Senior year of college that meet our requirements and are applying for a passport for the first time.

Once all applications have been reviewed, Passports Tatted will award the grant(s) to the Passports Tatted Global Access recipients.
Eligibility Requirements: 
To be eligible, students must:

  • Submit a 500 word essay on why traveling abroad is important and how traveling will impact your life

  • Be a first time U.S. passport holder (applications for passport renewals do not qualify)

  • Be a U.S. citizen

  • Have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher

  • Be a full time student of Junior or Senior status and/or have more than 60 credit hours

  • Demonstrate intent to travel abroad while enrolled as an undergraduate
