About the Program
The Data Scholars Program provides spaces where students from many disciplines and backgrounds learn together, develop their data science skills, 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, and community with other Scholars. Participation in the program consists of enrollment in 1-unit and 2-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.
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+.
