Deadline: January 28, 2022
The Data Science for Social Good Summer Fellowship is a 12-week program that trains students and recent graduates while giving them the opportunity to work on a data science project with a government or nonprofit partner that will have a meaningful impact on the partner’s community. The 2022 DSSG Summer Fellowship will take from May 30, 2022 through August 19, 2022.
We are looking for social good organizations (typically but not limited to government agencies and nonprofit organizations) that are ready and eager to collaborate on a data science project with a team of bright, motivated students and recent graduates mentored by a full-time team of senior data scientists, project managers, and other technical staff on a project that will have a meaningful impact on the communities they serve.
Ideal project partners have a high-priority problem, where they have the resources and commitment to make an impact but need data analytics support. Projects are most successful when an organization has reached a sufficient level of data and organizational maturity to support the project. You can assess your own organization’s data maturity using our Data Maturity Framework.
We expect partners to assign staff members from their organization who can spend 1 to 3 hours per week providing assistance to the project team answering questions and providing context to the project team. We also expect project partners to spend 1 to 2 days with the project team at the beginning of the program on-site in Pittsburgh.
