Our Mission

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.
