Deadline: February 25, 2022
Interested in exploring new data-driven approaches to interdisciplinary challenges? Student applications are now open for this summer’s Data+ research program. The application deadline is February 25, but applications will be evaluated on a rolling basis, so students should apply as soon as possible.
Data+ is a full-time ten-week summer research experience for undergraduates and master’s students. Students join small teams and learn how to marshal, analyze and visualize data, while gaining broad exposure to the field of data science. In 2022, the program will run from May 23 through July 29.
Participants will receive a $5,000 stipend, out of which they must arrange their own housing and travel. Participants may not accept employment or take classes during the program.
