We are excited to announce that the iDigTRIO Biology Career Conference and Fair will be taking place throughout the week of February 21st, 2022. The iDigTRIO conference is aimed at collegiate and pre-collegiate students associated with TRIO programs around the United States (but is open to all students). The mission of the iDigTRIO Conference is to provide opportunities to explore careers and graduate programs in the biological sciences to first generation, limited income, and underrepresented students (Black, Latinx, Indigenous, other students of color, and students with disabilities). Through intentional programming and networking, we seek to create future leaders in science and build a sense of community for their academic, personal, and professional journeys.
iDigTRIO 2022 will be a hybrid experience. There will be in-person career shadowing and mentoring February 21-23, as well as an in-person resource fair and reception on Wednesday February 23rd followed by a virtual 3-day conference February 24-26, 2022. Virtual mentoring opportunities will be made available after the conference. This event is completely free, but we do not have travel or lodging support currently.
IMPORTANT: Register by November 1st to receive the in-person shadowing and mentoring sign-up form!
