UNC Global Passport to Go!

This campaign ended on March 08, 2019, but you can still make a gift to The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill by clicking here!

Think about the first time you traveled abroad -  boarding the plane - navigating a new country. The awe you experienced at the places you visited, and the different people you met. It was a whole new world in front of you, and you undoubtedly were forever changed by the experience.

And it all started with a passport.

UNC Global is raising $15,000 for Passport to Go! to provide more than 100 students the gift of global opportunities.

For $145, you can give a student their first passport, the key to the globe not only while they’re at UNC, but for the next ten years. Even if students receive scholarships or financial aid to study or research abroad, the cost and concept of obtaining a passport can be prohibitive. The award of $145 covers the application cost for a U.S. passport and will be disbursed at the annual UNC Global Passport Drive. Recipients cover the cost of passport photos ($7 to $15).

As one student said, “The Passport to Go! program helped me in ways beyond just financial. I was much less overwhelmed in getting my passport because of the passport drive on UNC’s campus. The program also connected me to the Global Center's other events that informed me about various aspects of international travel, which gave me the confidence I needed to travel myself.”

Passport to Go! is just one of the ways UNC Global is leading Carolina’s efforts to build global awareness, programs and opportunities. Carolina is committed to graduating all students with the skills to succeed in an interconnected world, which is why A Global Mindset is a top priority in the University’s largest fundraising campaign ever, the Campaign for Carolina.
