Hi all,

Please see the below for an introductory data science and ML program aimed at undergraduates (preferably 3rd and 4th year students) and share with anyone you know who would be interested - it's an amazing opportunity (full scholarships of 6400 USD for all students) and it'd be great to see some African students in this year's course!

Applications Open: EquiTech Scholars Program
Online | June 13-August 5, 2022 | Eligibility: Current Undergraduate Students In Any Discipline | Fully Funded

The EquiTech Scholars Program is a fully-funded opportunity. Scholars will attend an intensive 8-week online cohort-based program with courses in Foundations of Data Science, Applied Artificial Intelligence, and Climate Change. Scholars will also attend a Speaking Lab and a Writing Lab to build communication skills which are essential to becoming successful innovators in the 21st century. Our focus on learning by doing and building a data science mindset will give you the tools, networks, and perspectives to be a data-savvy leader in any career of your choosing - whether it is in industry, academia, NGOs, or the public sector. 

Taught by leading researchers and practitioners from some of the world's top universities (such as Oxford, Cambridge, Caltech and more), the EquiTech Scholars program provides a unique opportunity to build essential data skills through small-group learning, tutorials, and faculty-mentored research projects. 

We welcome applicants from all disciplines and backgrounds around the world. We do not have minimum GPA/grade requirements, and no prior work experience is needed. Rather, we are looking for people who are curious, analytical, persistent, and open-minded when confronted with challenging problems.
