From: Lauren Haynes <lnhaynes at gmail.com>

We’re running the Data Science for Social Good Summer Fellowship
<http://dssg.uchicago.edu/> again in 2017 and the application deadline
is January 31st.

I wanted to ask for help in getting strong students to apply. *If there are
students and/or colleagues (as mentors) who you think would be a good fit,
please forward this on to them and/or send it to any mailing lists you
think are relevant*.

We typically look for a mix of students: Computer Science, Machine
Learning, Statistics, Social Sciences, Public Policy; and create teams that
spend 12 weeks over the summer working in partnership with a non-profit or
government organization on projects related to education, health,
sustainability, community & economic development, disaster relief, crime,
social services, social justice, and more. I want to make sure people who
are interested get to be a part of this and really appreciate your help in
getting the word out! I'm also happy to discuss the program further if you
want to get involved in any way.

*More details:*

We are looking for:

*Fellows*: Typically grad students (or advanced undergrads) who have
computational and data analysis skills and want to make a social impact.
Most of our fellows have backgrounds in CS, Machine Learning, Data Mining,
Stats, Applied Math, Economics, Sociology, Other Social Sciences, and
Public Policy.

*Mentors*: If you're a Faculty member (with significant industry
experience) or an experienced Data Scientist (with strong academic
training) who wants to come join us for the summer, we have full-time
(paid) mentor positions.

Project Managers : If you have consulting experience and can manage 4
projects simultaneously with teams of 3-4 people per project, we have
full-time (paid) project manager positions.
