With the i2 Passport Program, each student who attends one of the pre-determined activities receives a “visa stamp” which equals credit/point value for that participation. A total of $15,000 in cash prizes is available to help the winners pay off their student debt. This pilot program is taking place in the spring semester of 2017, starting with the kick-off event on February 12, 2017 and ending with the final event and announcement of winners on May 8, 2017.
- The winner with the most visa credits receives $8,000.*
- Additionally, there will be TWO second prize drawings of $3,500 for two students from the pool of students who reach a minimum visa credit level* and another prize drawing of $3,500 for one student from a pool of First Generation students who reach a minimum visa credit level.**
- Registration and agreement to the rules, terms, and conditions is required.
- Speaker Series: First Generation Students Who Became Entrepreneurs on Wednesday, April 5th for 2,000 Visa Stamp Credits. You MUST pre-register for the event by clicking the RSVP button in Wildcat Link.
This site will be continually updated with more information, so please check back often.
i2 Passport is made possible thanks to the generosity of Harry Patten '58 and the Wildcatalysts Network.
