CSUN Data Science Program Application

The National Science Foundation/CSUN Data Science program prepares students to enter the technical workforce as data scientists. The program includes a bootcamp between May 20 and July 3, 2019, a two-semester-long data science research experience, career workshops and seminars with data science practitioners during the 2019-2020 academic year.

CSUN students or transfer students are welcome to apply regardless of your major or minor. However, preference is given to students with at least one statistics course and one programming class (or like experience) with junior or senior standing who are seeking careers in data science. There will be meetings on every other Wednesday afternoon featuring data science speakers and career workshops and weekly meetings with your advisor.

Students who are admitted to the program will receive a $2000 stipend for completion of the summer course. Students will also work on a long-year data science project with an advisor and receive another stipend of $500 per semester. US citizenship or permanent residency is required for program participation.

Application deadline is March 27, 2019. After an initial review, we may contact you for an additional interview.
