Dr. Warren Rosenberg, Provost, and
CW students, Joseph Gonzalez and Eric M. Lopez, were selected to participate in the iSchool Inclusion Institute (i3) Scholar Undergraduate Research Program at the University of Pittsburgh School of Computing and Information. The undergraduate program focuses on research and leadership development for the underrepresented populations across the country to lead to graduate studies and careers in the information sciences.
The admittance process into the program is very competitive and students are evaluated for qualities beyond GPA. Only 25 students from across the country are selected each year! Since 2012, The College of Westchester now has 15 students accepted into the prestigious i3 Scholars Program. As part of this program, Joseph and Eric will undertake a yearlong experience that includes two summer institutes and a research project spanning the year. The i3 program prepares students for the rigors of graduate study and serves as a pipeline for i3 Scholars into internationally recognized information schools – the iSchools. Most importantly, the i3 empowers students to create change and make an impact on the people around them. i3 Scholars receive full funding for program expenses including travel and GRE test preparation.
