Data+ is a full-time ten week summer research experience that welcomes Duke undergraduate and masters students interested in exploring new data-driven approaches to interdisciplinary challenges. It is suitable for students from all class years and from all majors. Students join small project teams (at most 3 undergrads and 1 masters per team), working alongside other teams in a communal environment. They learn how to marshal, analyze, and visualize data, while gaining broad exposure to the modern world of data science. The projects come from an extremely diverse set of subject areas. It is our hope that students will be able to both work deeply into their specific project and get a very broad picture of most of the skills needed for modern data science.

Participants will receive a $5,000 stipend, out of which they must arrange their own housing and travel. Students choosing to live on campus will receive room and board and a $1,000 stipend. Funding and infrastructure support are provided by a wide range of departments, schools, and initiatives from across Duke University, as well as by outside industry and community partners. Participants may not accept employment or take classes during the program; this requirement is strictly enforced and non-negotiable..

Data+ is typically a program where students have dedicated workspace within Gross Hall at Duke University. Last summer (2021), Data+ ran in a hybrid fashion due to the pandemic, and was quite successful. We are currently awaiting university guidance for Summer 2022, and hope to update shortly as to whether Data+ 2022 will be in-person, hybrid, or remote. Until we update further, applicants should assume that in-person participation will be expected.

The program runs from Monday, May 23rd until Friday, July 29th 2022. Students must be able to participate in the entire program, with no exceptions.

The application deadline is Feb. 25, 2021, but we will evaluate applications on a rolling basis, so please get your applications in as soon as you can!
