Data Science for Social Good Summer Program ­

­ The University of Washington eScience Institute, in collaboration with Urban@UW and Microsoft, is excited to announce the 2017 Data Science for Social Good (DSSG) summer program. The program brings together data and domain scientists to work on focused, collaborative projects that are designed to impact public policy for social benefit. Modeled after similar programs at the University of Chicago and Georgia Tech, with elements from our own Data Science Incubator, sixteen DSSG Student Fellows will be selected to work with academic researchers, data scientists, and public stakeholder groups on data-intensive research projects. This year’s projects will have an applied social good dimension and broadly address questions related to social science, human services, public policy, criminal justice, environmental impacts, and urban informatics. We welcome proposals submitted by academic researchers, public agencies, non-profit entities, and industry. 2017 DSSG Call for Proposals – deadline January 16th 2017 DSSG Student Fellows – call for applicants will be posted in mid-January Data Science for Social Good project summaries Summer 2016 Project blog posts Summer 2015 Meet the 2016 Data Science for Social Good Fellows here
