Visit Webpage

The Data Science for Social Good summer program at the University of Washington eScience Institute brings together data scientists and domain researchers to work on focused, collaborative projects for societal benefit. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 program will be conducted remotely.

The program supports compelling, timely, publicly-relevant projects that are poised to take advantage of tremendous student and professional technical talent and computation resources. If you have an idea for a project that could benefit from access to a team of talented and motivated students, exposure to new data-intensive methods, and guidance in best practices for software development, reproducible science, and human-centered design, then we would love to hear from you.

The Call for Project Proposals is open now through February 22nd. The Call for Student Applications opens January 11th, with an application deadline of February 15th.

If you would like to discuss your idea before submitting a proposal, please reach out to Program Chair Anissa Tanweer <>.
