We were thrilled to welcome our four PhD Teaching Fellows, Brooke Auxier (University of Maryland), Kolina Koltai (University of Texas at Austin), Brittany Ann Kos (University of Colorado Boulder), and Mustafa Hussain (University of California, Irvine). These scholars arrived to teach our i3 scholars two-week Research Design and Programming Modules.

The 2018 Introductory Institute is off to an exciting start! We welcomed our newest cohort of 27 students from 16 different states and territories and 22 colleges and universities. We also welcomed 14 guest speakers who ran workshops introducing research and topic areas within the field. In addition to academic workshops, i3 Scholars built resumes and cover letters, practiced interviewing, and explored local attractions.

i3 2018: Week Three Highlights

With half of our 2018 Summer Institute complete, we enter into our third week. Each year, Week 3 is particularly exciting as we welcome back last year's scholars to begin their Concluding Institute. Over the course of one weekend, our number of i3 Scholars in Pittsburgh doubles and new connections between cohorts begin to develop. Our 2017 Scholars reunited with their teams and settled in to prepare for their final presentations.
