IRT Welcomes 2020 Cohort
For the safety and wellbeing of our scholars, the IRT has made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s summer workshop. Instead of our average 30 interns and 100 associates, we will be supporting a total of 139 scholars for the 2020-2021 cohort! 58% of the class will be pursuing fields in the Arts & Sciences while 42% are pursuing Education tracks.
This past year, we’ve also increased our recruitment efforts at Hispanic serving institutions which has paid off. 40% of this year’s cohort identify as Hispanic or Latino, 36% as Black or African American, 15% as Asian/Asian American and 8% as bi-racial, white, or other.
Due to CVOID-19, recruitment travel this upcoming fall will be sparse — we need your help! Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in hosting an information session yourself on campus or if you are willing to coordinate with me to present a virtual webinar for your students this fall.
