Frequently asked questions

What is the time commitment?

The Data Science Fellowship is an intense 15-week program. You’ll be expected to be on campus from 9 am to 6 pm, from Monday to Friday, with the potential for some extra work outside of those hours.

Do I need a computer?

For the in-person courses, we work on Mac laptops with the latest OS installed. If you don’t have one already, we can provide a loaner. For online courses, you do need your own computer, but it can be either a Macbook or a PC. You can view the minimum required technical computer specs for all courses here.

How can I apply to scholarships for the in-person program?

All scholarships to our in-person program are granted after a student is admitted. Scholarships are granted on a need and merit basis, with preference given to underrepresented minorities in tech, including women and military veterans. If you feel that describes you, you can share your story with us on the scholarship application once you are admitted into the program.
