Obtaining a passport is one of the first steps to complete when considering studying abroad. In an effort to support University of Oregon student participation in study abroad programs, the Division of Global Engagement has funded a passport initiative. This initiative awards a grant that covers the cost of a U.S. passport book and first-time processing fee to all eligible freshman and sophomore standing students.

If selected, you will be expected to bring your completed U.S. passport application to the Passport Party. The details of the Passport Party will be announced after the application deadline.  At the event you will submit your passport application to a U.S. passport service agent for processing. The UO Passport Center is located on the UO campus in the EMU.
