TRI Challenges


The TRI Challenges are 3 separate project experiences. Each follows the same 15-day, minimally intrusive timeline (shown below), and finishes with a unique presentation. Click one of the three challenges to learn more and apply today!

The applications are free and easy to fill out. Weekly deadlines are every Thursday at 11:59pm to start that weekend (the first Saturday introduction). Since the challenges are rolling admission, applications received after the deadline will be considered for the next week.
