Data Science Institute Fall Scholars Programs
The goal of the DSI Scholars Program is to engage Columbia's undergraduate and master students in data science research with Columbia faculty through a research internship. The program connects students with research projects across Columbia and provides student researchers with additional learning experience and networking opportunities. Through unique enrichment activities, this program aims to foster a learning and collaborative community in data science at Columbia.
The Data For Good Scholars program connects student volunteers to organizations and individuals working for the social good whose projects have developed a need for data science expertise. As "real world" problems with real world data, these projects are excellent opportunities for students to learn how data science is practiced outside of the university setting and to learn how to work effectively with people for whom data science sits outside of their subject area.
This year we have had an unprecedented number of projects; please give yourself enough time to read the project descriptions. For your application choose the TOP five projects of which you are most interested, eligible and qualified.
Applications are due by October 1st, 2020.

2021 Code2040 Fellows Program
The application for the 2021 Fellows Program is now open! We’re looking for a cohort of Black & Latinx technologists who are excited about shaping the future of tech with innovation and racial equity advocacy.
The 2021 Fellows Program will be virtual, and for the first time ever, we’re recruiting students from all across the country to participate in a nationwide program. As the Code2040 team builds a strong foundation for our new virtual program, we’re also using this as an opportunity to reach out and call in folks from new communities. Racial equity is not just a Silicon Valley issue. It’s a national issue. We’re excited to open up the program so folks in various locations and tech hubs will be able to take advantage of our resources and racial equity advocacy work.
The Fellows Program is an intensive career accelerator for Black and Latinx college and graduate-level computer science students. For 9 weeks between June and August, you’ll intern at a top tech company and engage in racial equity advocacy work. You’ll participate in a series of learning experiences designed to give you the tools and resources you need to navigate the tech industry, build a lasting career, and advocate for yourself and your community.
Student PIRGs Remote Internships
The Student PIRGs are working at college campuses across America to turn out the youth vote for November 2020!
To say this year has been challenging is an understatement. From the global health pandemic to the collapsing economy to the civil unrest in our country, there’s a lot of uncertainty right now. But with the 2020 Election approaching, we know young people can make a big impact and shape the future of our country.
We had the opportunity to train 700 of student leaders this summer to become effective activists and organizers. All of them have had the opportunity to set up meetings with campus decision makers, learn how to digitally organize and plan strategic campaigns, and register thousands of students to vote. Not only have these students learned all the basics to become campus activists, but they've gotten to make an impact while doing it. If you want to continue this momentum into the Fall, join our team here.
Our main campaign this fall is our New Voters Project. On Election Day, young people will be the largest and most diverse group of potential voters, with distinct values and ideas. That's why we’re working with colleges’ student governments and other student groups this fall to make sure no one misses Election Day. We are looking for folks who are ready to make a difference on issues and help us increase the youth vote in 2020. We have internship positions for campus outreach, programs outreach, and spreading the world through media and social media.
