On Wednesday, November 1st, 92 enrolled GW students were given a free passport. The GW Office for Study Abroad partnered with CIEE, a study abroad program provider, to support the Institute of International Education’s Generation Study Abroad ™, an initiative to make study abroad possible for more U.S. students by breaking down the three major barriers to study abroad: cost, curriculum, and culture.

Over five years, CIEE is sponsoring passports for 10,000 students around the country, as well as providing $20 million in scholarships and making an annual grant to college faculty to support innovative approaches for custom study abroad programs. The goal of Generation Study Abroad is to double the number of American students who study abroad by 2020.
