Application for UCSB's Fall 2021 Data Science Fellows Program

Application Deadline: Monday, March 15, 2021, 5:00pm
The goal of the Data Science Fellows Program is to organize and support an annual cohort of highly motivated data science students by engaging them in data science education and outreach activities outside of their normally required coursework.

We are targeting current sophomores and juniors and aim for a diverse and inclusive cohort. First acceptances announced mid-April, all decisions made by end of May.
