Throughout the workshop series, you will learn how to support students in culminating and curating their work experience and final projects in different forms of exhibition.

As a token of appreciation for your time, you will be compensated with a $125 stipend for actively participating in each of the 8 "I4I" workshop meetings, for a total stipend of $1,000.
