Data+ is a ten-week summer research experience for undergraduates and master’s students interested in exploring new data-driven approaches to interdisciplinary challenges.
Students join small teams (a maximum of three undergraduates and one master’s student) and work alongside other teams in a communal environment. They learn how to marshal, analyze and visualize data, while gaining broad exposure to the field of data science.
The program runs from late May through late July each year, with the application deadline in February. Participants receive a stipend. Students come from a variety of backgrounds, majors and levels of experience with coding. Through collaboration, they use data analysis to solve problems across disciplines.
Data+ is offered through the Information Initiative at Duke and is part of the Bass Connections Information, Society & Culture theme.
Each student receives a $5,000 stipend for this full-time research experience (no classes or other employment during Data+). It is open to all Duke students at all levels and from all majors.
