Process
Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. The application will close on Friday, October 1 at 11:59 pm.
 
You will be asked to answer the following questions:

We know the process and cost of obtaining a passport can be a barrier to going abroad. What does having a passport mean to you? What opportunities will this passport unlock? How will these experiences impact your education? (Maximum of 250 words).

Please briefly describe any financial obstacles you have experienced that would make you a good candidate to receive a free passport (an approximately $160 value).

Once you complete the online form, your information will be reviewed by the Education Abroad Office. You will receive an email by Friday, October 15 indicating whether you have been selected to receive a passport.
