Data Science for the Social Good

Summer Projects 2021

We are proud to announce that this year we will partake in the renowned Data Science for Social Good (DSSG) initiative. The program will run for 12 weeks from 7 June to 27 August 2021 and will be entirely online due to COVID-19. DSSG gives aspiring data scientists the opportunity to refine their data science skills through intense training, and by working in small supervised teams on real-world data mining, machine learning, and data science projects. Selected fellows will receive a stipend to work with global non-profit organizations and government bodies to make a real-world social impact with their data, by improving their services, interventions, and outreach.

Fellows will be supported by technical mentors and project managers with a strong technical background and several years of industry or consulting experience. All mentors and managers are paid full-time during the three months and receive the unique opportunity to work with top international data science talents on projects that really matter.
