GEO Passport Grant

The Global Education Office is pleased to offer UNM students a scholarship to cover the cost of their new U.S. Passport. This program is designed to grow the number of UNM students able to participate in a credit-granting international program, and to heighten students' intercultural awareness and expertise through international travel. GEO is eager to assist eligible students, who would benefit from support with paying for and procuring their passport, to take this initial step on their education abroad journey.


Preference given for students who are:

  • In their 1st year
  • Eligible for the Pell Grant
  • Member of a diverse or minority group (See application for full list)
