MVSU Students Signed Up for Free Passports

ITTA BENA, MS (Ben Caxton) — thirty-five Mississippi Valley State University students received free passports this week. In a special program sponsored by the university and the Council on International Educational Exchange, students were encouraged to bring original copies of their birth certificates, and on hand were photographers, and certified passport officials from post offices in Indianola and Grenada to guide the students filling out the paperwork and process the applications. The normal passport fees which total about $145 were paid for by the University and CIEE. The goal was to make sure students were prepared for opportunities to study abroad. Last school year 10 Valley students studied abroad in countries ranging from Costa Rica, and Kazakhstan to Great Britain.
