  • Obtain proof of attendance at each event
  • Write one reflection paper at the end of each month in which you discuss what you believe you’ve learned about yourself, your community, or your university

Prize

The Honors College will be giving out up to 6 scholarships (ranging from $500 to $1,500) for the 2010-2011 academic year to students that successfully complete the Passport Program.
