2017 iScholars

iScholars was built on the vision that every Virginia Tech student should be able to transform data into actionable information, explain their work in a broader societal context, communicate effectively, and know how to build and work effectively in strong teams.

The iScholars program was designed to achieve this vision by supporting a cohort of students from diverse majors in a hollistic  experience that provides:

• innovation directed internships with companies in the NCR

• credit-bearing coursework that offered formal learning in innovation, enterprise skills, and professional development

• mentoring in navigating the internship experience

• a community of undergraduate peers working together throughout the academic year and living together in the NCR over the summer
