The Harvard Data Science Initiative (HDSI) Is very proud to announce the inaugural participants in the new, Summer Program for Undergraduates in Data Science (SPUDS):
The new Summer Program for Undergraduates in Data Science is a ten-week summer program, co-sponsored by Harvard College and the HDSI, that aims to provide a formative and substantive data science research experience and to promote community, creativity, and scholarship amongst Harvard College students.
SPUDS will support Fellows with interests in computer science, mathematics, and statistics, including those who are interested in data science applications across the arts, humanities, sciences and more.
Fellows will work with Harvard-affiliated researchers and live in one of the Harvard College houses with other fellows in the Summer Undergraduate Research Village. As part of SPUDS, fellows will participate in rich evening programming, including both social and academic activities, and become members of a vibrant intellectual and social summer community.
