Support IIE’s American Passport Project
Help Pell-eligible college students obtain a passport so they can study abroad.
Only a small percentage of U.S. citizens between the ages of 18 and 24 have a passport, and just 1 in 10 students in that age range study abroad. For students of limited means or from underserved communities, studying abroad can require thoughtful, long-term planning. IIE’s American Passport Project enables 1,000 Pell-eligible students from 40 institutions per year to obtain their U.S. passport, and empowers them to kick-start their study abroad plans.
It has long been part of IIE’s mission to increase participation and diversity in study abroad, so that all students can gain the academic and career benefits of international experience. Help offer this transformational experience, and encourage students to go abroad who would otherwise not participate in an international experience as part of their college education.
