The Nice Passport

Learn outside the classroom and earn scholarship.

The Nice Center encourages students and faculty to be entrepreneurial. One way to do that is with The Nice Passport, which encourages attendance at events on and off campus related to creativity, entrepreneurship, learning and leadership, and community.

To get your passport and begin qualifying for a scholarship, all you have to do is attend an event. We will email you with a link to your passport, where you can track your progress. Attend an event in each of the four categories, and you will be eligible to win a $500 Nice Passport scholarship!

The 2020 Nice Passport Events

Events are added throughout the year. If you have an event related to our core topic areas and can take attendance at the event, let us know. We will add your event to the passport.
