About the Program
Data Scholars provides spaces where students from many disciplines and backgrounds learn together, develop their skills in data science, and co-create a diverse community. Students receive support in introductory data science courses, mentorship, and guidance to excel in the field through course support, project work, community with other Scholars, and pathways to get involved with data science research and teaching.
Data Scholars hold many different identities and come from many different backgrounds that are often underrepresented in the field, including but not limited to low income, first generation college, transfer, re-entry, undocumented, historically underrepresented ethnicity or gender, disabled, foster, and LGBTQA+.
Participation in the program consists of enrollment in 1-unit seminar courses, where Scholars will receive course help, participate in skill-building workshops, and attend technical and career-focused talks from individuals in industry, research, academia, and more.
