UNH will be hosting the CIEE Passport Caravan that will help at least 50 students apply for U.S. passports free of charge. 

This event is part of our support of Generation Study Abroad.  We hope to encourage more students to participate in the wide array of global opportunities by covering passport fees totaling $135. U.S. passports last for ten years, opening up a decade of possibilities for Wildcats to study, live, work, and travel abroad.
