The cost of a passport today can cost you up to $110, which unfortunately for some “ends their journey before it begins.” says CCI Dean Amy Reynolds Ph.D.
The good news is the Kent State University College of Communication and Information now has a donor-funded called the “First Passport Fund.” It will provide students in the program that are interested in studying abroad the ability to obtain a passport for the first-time.
There are some stipulations however. The College of Communication and Information will reimburse the cost of first passports, and not renewals. Students applying must also carry a 2.5 GPA and demonstrate financial need.
The first round of students have been approved for their passports. Read more to see what they are studying and where they will be traveling!
