The innovative and nationally recognized i2 Passport Program rewards students for engaging in ideas and entrepreneurship activities on campus with the chance to win $35,000 in cash prizes to help pay off student loans and tuition, with an additional focus on FirstGen students (first in family to attend college). We want to encourage students to start to explore and understand ideas, innovation, and entrepreneurship and how they might incorporate aspects into their personal and academic lives. This involvement is then rewarded in Passport Visa Stamps Credits and the chance to win prizes totaling $35,000. This fall is our fourth semester of the i2 Passport Program. Last year, we offered over $25,000 in cash prizes to help pay off student loans or pay for tuition. A record 418 students enrolled for both semesters. Thank you to Harry Patten ’58 and the Patten Family Foundation for their financial support of the i2 Passport Program!
