About

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 hollisticĀ  experience that provides:

  • articulate the environmental and internal forces that influence organizations
  • identify the key skills for success in the professional workplace
  • define and model characteristics and practices of a successful innovator and intrapreneur
  • articulate personal and professional goals for the iScholars summer experience
  • function well as a learning cohort primed to support each other through the summer
  • make Virginia Tech proud as iScholars working for our corporate partners in the NCR or elsewhere
