The culmination of our work is the Pro Kids scholarship program. With more than $2.5 million in awards to 250 scholars to date, it reflects our founding vision: “Golf is the hook; education is the payoff.” Most of our scholars are the first in their families to pursue higher education and have limited support at home. We bridge the gap in two ways: through adult mentors, who provide guidance to our aspiring students, and through academic scholarships. Students complete a rigorous application for this selective program. By offering renewable awards to scholars attending community colleges, vocational schools, four-year universities, and graduate schools, we extend Pro Kids’ reach, supporting our members through college and beyond.
Scholar Spotlight | Calista Reyes
Calista Reyes is a rising senior at Stanford University where she plays for the women’s golf team. Calista is currently undertaking her core classes for her major in Engineering – Product Design and Economics. After countless sleepless nights, Calista can proudly say that she has straight A’s and an incredible golf resume. When Calista is not studying or dominating on the golf course, Calista enjoys volunteering at Pro Kids, particularly during our annual summer camps. Calista is shining brightly, and we wish her best of luck as she gears up for her senior year!
