COVID-19 Information for 2019 i3 Scholars Returning for Concluding Institute

Update: May 16, 2020

To ensure the safety of our i3 Scholars and i3 community, we will hold a variation of this year’s Concluding Institute remotely. 2019 i3 Scholars will also be invited to next year’s Concluding Institute (which will have updated content) in order to reconnect with your cohort in person, meet the newest Scholars, connect with graduate programs and industry personnel, and share all of your hard work. We will provide more details soon.


Update: May 9, 2020

We are currently waiting for additional information in order to make a final decision about the status of this year’s Concluding Institute. We apologize for the delay and appreciate your patience.


Update: April 14, 2020

With the COVID-19 global pandemic, we’ve had to reconsider all processes leading up to and including our 2020 Introductory Institute. The safety, health, and well-being of our i3 Scholars, faculty, guest speakers, and the broader i3 community (including your friends and family) are our top priority.

I’m sure you have questions, so here is what we know thus far:


Tentatively yes, although the dates have shifted to allow more time between now and the Concluding Institute. The new dates are July 19, 2020 – August 1, 2020.

While we haven’t cancelled the Introductory Institute at this current time, we are actively monitoring all communications from Public Health, Medical, and Higher Education professionals as we move closer to summer. We will only hold the Introductory Institute if it is absolutely safe to do so.

This is a time of uncertainty, so as we move through the next few weeks we will be sure to communicate with you as we know more. Please be gentle with yourselves and stay well.
