The University of Washington eScience Institute
<http://escience.washington.edu/>, in collaboration with Urban@UW
<http://urban.uw.edu/> and Microsoft, is excited to announce the 2016 Data
Science for Social Good (DSSG)
summer program. The program brings together data and domain scientists to
work on focused, collaborative projects that are designed to impact public
policy for social benefit.

Modeled after similar programs at the University of Chicago
<http://dssg.io/projects/> and Georgia Tech <http://dssg-atl.io/projects/>,
with elements from our own Data Science Incubator
<http://escience.washington.edu/get-involved/incubator-programs/>, sixteen
DSSG Student Fellows will be selected to work with academic researchers,
data scientists, and public stakeholder groups on data-intensive research
projects. Graduate students and advanced undergraduates are eligible for
these paid positions.

This year’s projects will focus on Urban Science, aiming to understand and
extract valuable, actionable information out of data from urban
environments across topic areas including public health, sustainable urban
planning, crime prevention, education, transportation, and social justice.
