50 Kennesaw State students will earn free passports through partnership with Delta

KENNESAW, Ga. | Oct 23, 2023

Fifty Kennesaw State University (KSU) students will earn free passports this fall through a sponsorship from Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines that is being administered on campus by the Global Education office. Students must apply by Oct. 24 to be considered.

Delta has committed $51,000 to help increase access to global education experiences and foster international perspectives among students.

The Atlanta Global Research and Education Collaborative (AGREC), consisting of Kennesaw State, Agnes Scott College, Emory University, Georgia State University, Georgia Tech, and Spelman College, is the recipient of this funding. Delta’s sponsorship will fund 50 passports at each partner institution, totaling 300 passports during the 2023-2024 academic year.

“We are excited and grateful to be a part of the passport funding initiative,” said Lexie Baker, interim director of Education Abroad at KSU. “Our goal is to break down barriers for students and acquiring a passport is the first barrier that many students face when trying to study abroad. This can open up a whole new world for them!”

Kennesaw State’s Free Passport Initiative is open to current Kennesaw State University students who are:

  • Enrolled, degree-seeking (Undergraduate or Graduate)
  • Demonstrate financial need
  • First-time US passport applicants
  • Preference to students applying to participate in a KSU Education Abroad program
