From women’s education and health to relief work and conservation of resources, non-profit organizations are doing remarkable work in the world. Unlike for-profit companies, these organizations do not have enough resources to upskill their workforce. Data Science Dojo brings this unique opportunity for employees of non-profit organizations to learn the latest techniques in data science and contribute toward the social good. We aim to create future leaders with a passion for employing data-driven solutions for social good.

We firmly believe that data science skills can be used for making a social impact. Check out this talk on AI for Social Good.

Frequently Asked Questions

You must be employed at a non-profit organization, or make a strong case (backed up by your resume) as to how your current work will serve social good.

Post-doctoral researchers are also welcome to apply, but preference is given to non-profit employees.

We select outstanding candidates with a passion for data science and a track record of community service.

Preference is also given to applicants that have clear goals about how to use data science to give back to their communities.

We select fellows once per quarter. This is done on a “rolling deadline” basis, meaning that we will review applications in the order that they are submitted to us. Even if you apply in a different quarter, you may still be considered for the next quarter.

Selected fellows will be notified 3-4 weeks prior to the bootcamp.

Applicants are encouraged to submit their fellowship application at least one month prior to their targeted bootcamp. For example, if you  want to go to the Seattle bootcamp starting March 28, you should apply before February 28.

If you are not selected for your targeted bootcamp, you remain eligible for the next bootcamp in your area. For example, if you are not selected for the March 28 Seattle fellowship, you remain eligible for the next Seattle bootcamp fellowship.

  • Fully covered tuition at a 5-day bootcamp
  • Access to the learning portal
  • Books and other course materials
  • Travel expenses (up to $1000 USD)

At the end of the bootcamp, we ask our fellows to write a blog post describing their experience at the bootcamp and how they plan to apply their learning in the respective industry. Fellows are also encouraged to use social media during the bootcamp to describe their experience.

We also like to stay connected to Data Science Dojo fellows. 3-6 months after the bootcamp, we will ask you to explain how you used data science to solve any problems, especially those related to social good.

If you are not selected for a fellowship, your application remains active. We will consider it again for the next fellowship selection.

You can also consider a paid bootcamp. Our prices start at $2,799. You can also explore our financing plans.
