Data Sciences for the 21st Century (DS421) is a two-year interdisciplinary training program designed to prepare graduate students to address the grand challenges at the intersection of natural, social and data sciences. Through a combination of coursework, workshops, symposia, and inter-departmental immersion, students will gain the skills necessary to translate data into evidence-based analysis of impacts and solutions in the face of rapid environmental change.
This program is open to first year and incoming graduate students from all departments, and is designed to be integrated with their current graduate program. A number of second year fellowships for Ph.D. trainees are available, which provide a stipend of $32,000, plus payment of tuition and fees. The application deadline is March 24, 2017. See the Data Sciences website for more information.
