Support for student engagement in data science education and outreach activities and the development of a new curriculum.

UCSB's Data Science fellows program will organize and support an annual cohort of highly motivated data science students by engaging them in the data science education and outreach activities outside of their normally required coursework. Each fellow will assist in curriculum development or teaching, tutoring students of the introductory data science courses, visiting local high schools to talk about the data science profession and education, and organizing / participating in data science hackathons. We are targeting current sophomores and juniors for this fellowship program, aiming for a diverse and inclusive cohort.
