Call for Applications! DSI Scholars Program

The Data Science Institute is pleased to announce that the Data Science Institute (DSI) and Data For Good Scholars Programs for Fall 2021 are open for applications.

The goal of the DSI Scholars Program is to engage Columbia's undergraduate and master students in data science research with Columbia faculty through a research internship. The program connects students with research projects across Columbia and provides student researchers with additional learning experience and networking opportunities. Through unique enrichment activities, this program aims to foster a learning and collaborative community in data science at Columbia.


The Data For Good Scholars program connects student volunteers to organizations and individuals working for the social good whose projects have developed a need for data science expertise. As "real world" problems with real world data, these projects are excellent opportunities for students to learn how data science is practiced outside of the university setting and to learn how to work effectively with people for whom data science sits outside of their subject area.


This term we have had a very large number of projects submitted; please give yourself enough time to read the project descriptions. For your application, choose the TOP five projects of which you are most interested, eligible and qualified.


Please email questions to dsi-scholars@columbia.edu, see our FAQ, or attend the information session at 5pm Eastern time on September 14th, 2021.


Applications are due by SEPTEMBER 25, 2021.
