Explore the 2023 Data+ Summer Research Projects
January 11, 2023
Interested in exploring new data-driven approaches to interdisciplinary challenges?
Data+ is a full-time ten-week summer research experience for undergraduates and master’s students. Students join small teams and learn how to marshal, analyze and visualize data, while gaining broad exposure to the field of data science. In Summer 2023, the program will run from Monday, May 29 until Friday, August 4.
Within Data+, students can apply to Climate+, which aims to advance interdisciplinary understanding of climate change’s causes and societal impacts and to identify sustainable solutions.
Participants will receive a $5,000 stipend, out of which they must arrange their own housing and travel. They may not accept employment or take classes during the program.
Students can learn more about Data+ at the Plus Programs Info Fair on January 19 from 11:00-1:00 p.m. in Gross Hall. Applications will open after the fair and be accepted on a rolling basis through the end of February.
Data+ is offered through the Rhodes Information Initiative at Duke and is part of the Bass Connections Information, Society & Culture theme.
