Small grant, big impact! Your donation will allow us to provide $145 grants to UCI students to offset the costs of applying for a new passport, which they need to apply to study abroad.
Only ⅓ of US citizens have a valid passport. The cost to apply for a new U.S. passport is $145. Students incur this cost during the application phase before financial aid is disbursed.
With over 75% of UCI students receiving some form of financial assistance, we know students need help covering pre-departure expenses including the new passport application fee.
Help us reach our goal of $2,175 to provide 15 UCI students with a passport grant!
The mission of the Study Abroad Center is to foster a culture at UCI in which study abroad is expected and achievable for all students. We also support our international reciprocity and exchange students so as to enhance their academic and personal experiences in the U.S. We aim to ensure that our students’ study abroad experiences help them affect positive change in the world, both locally and globally.
