The UW Data Science for Social Good summer program brings together students, stakeholders, data scientists, and domain researchers to work on focused, collaborative projects for societal benefit.

To tackle complex societal challenges, UW DSSG teams take a multi-dimensional approach that integrates data science techniques, ethical thinking, and stakeholder engagement. Student Fellows work with real-world data on cross-disciplinary teams led by Project Leads from academia, nonprofits, and government, along with data scientists at the eScience Institute who offer technical expertise and guidance. In addition to project-based collaboration and mentoring, students also participate in tutorials, workshops, and career discussions. This 10-week long, hands-on program emphasizes learning opportunities for all participants as they collaboratively navigate intensive teamwork in pursuit of Data Science for Social Good.
