The University of Washington eScience Institute will begin accepting applications for Student Fellows to participate in the 2021 Data Science for Social Good (DSSG) summer program on January 11th. The program brings together data scientists and domain researchers to work on focused, collaborative projects for societal benefit. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic this program will be conducted remotely.
Up to sixteen DSSG Student Fellows will be selected to work with academic researchers, data scientists, and public stakeholder groups on data-intensive research projects.
This program, which has been running since the summer of 2015, was inspired by similar endeavors such as the Data Science for Social Good program originally at the University of Chicago (now at CMU).
This year’s projects will leverage data science approaches to address societal challenges in areas such as human services, public policy, health and safety, environmental impacts, transportation, accessibility, social justice, and urban informatics.

Who: Graduate students and advanced (junior/senior) undergraduate students. You must be enrolled in a degree granting program in spring 2021 and fall 2021 to be eligible to apply.
