We’re running the Data Science for Social Good Summer Fellowship
<http://dssg.uchicago.edu/> again in 2016 and the application deadline is
1st. I wanted to ask for help in getting strong students to apply. *If
there are students and/or colleagues (as mentors) who you think would be a
good fit, please forward this on to them and/or send it to any mailing
lists you think are relevant*.
We typically look for a mix of students: Computer Science, Machine
Learning, Statistics, Social Sciences, Public Policy; and create teams that
spend 12 weeks over the summer working in partnership with a non-profit or
government organization on projects related to education, health,
sustainability, community & economic development, disaster relief, crime,
social services, social justice, and more. I want to make sure people who
are interested get to be a part of this and really appreciate your help in
getting the word out! I'm also happy to discuss the program further if you
want to get involved in any way.
Want to learn more about the fellowship? Visit http://dssg.uchicago.edu
We are looking for:
*Fellows*: Typically grad students (or advanced undergrads) who have
computational and data analysis skills and want to make a social impact.
Most of our fellows have backgrounds in CS, Machine Learning, Data Mining,
Stats, Applied Math, Economics, Sociology, Other Social Sciences, and
*Mentors*: If you're a Faculty member (with significant industry
experience) or an experienced Data Scientist (with strong academic
training) who wants to come join us for the summer, we have full-time
(paid) mentor positions.
