Howards University Partners With ”We Go Too” To Get HBCU Students Passports To Study Aboard
Howard University recently partnered with We Go Too to organize a passport drive for its undergraduate and graduate students. The goal is to get more minority students participating in study abroad programs.
According to figures from the national association of international educators, NAFSA, only 5.6% of African-Americans participate in study abroad programs out of the total U.S. student population studying abroad.
We Go Too, is a travel advice website for minority travelers, and study abroad non-profit IES Abroad to set up the ‘one-stop shop’ to help students apply for a passport for the first time or to renew their passports.

The first 15 students who arrived at the passport drive had their passport application fees waived, as a result of donations from the university’s faculty and staff. Don’t wait any longer start working with your school, alumni organization and We Go Too; then begin researching study aboard opportunities.
