Underrepresented Students
Students from underrepresented populations and students with a demonstrated commitment to eradicating racial disparities for graduate study and careers in the information sciences are encouraged to apply.

In addition to racial and ethnic diversity, i3 considers gender, sexual orientation, ability/disability, national origin, ancestry, and status as a veteran in its admissions. Students are encouraged to explain in their application essays how they will use their background and experiences to make a valuable contribution to the information sciences.
