Dear Colleagues,

I am pleased to announce that the i3 admissions committee has extended its
application deadline to *March 2, 2012*!

Students are still encouraged to submit their applications sooner rather
than later. The admissions committee will be prioritizing early
applications. If your students are interested in a summer internship and
gaining research experience, please encourage them to apply.

*What is i3?*

*The iSchool Inclusion Institute (i3) is a leadership development program
that prepares undergraduate students from underrepresented populations for
graduate study in the information sciences.* i3 is held at the University
of Pittsburgh in June of each year. Students admitted to the program are
immersed in special-topics workshops, professional development seminars,
and network-building opportunities. Students receive practical guidance
from faculty, career counselors, and various industry professionals. i3
serves as a fantastic opportunity to learn about graduate school, explore
other fields of study, and develop your career-path.
