Registration for 2021 Data Science for Albertans Fellowships is now open!

Budding data scientists and industry partners have until June 13 to apply

Cybera is happy to announce the return of the Data Science for Albertans Fellowship program. From July 19 – August 27, emerging data scientists (Fellows) will be paired with industry partners, including entrepreneurs, startups, or small to medium-sized companies who are interested in adopting data science practices or exploring a data science problem.

This program provides the Fellows with the opportunity to tackle a “real-world” data science problem. They will receive professional development and networking opportunities, and will be supported with a stipend for their work. They will also be mentored throughout the six-week sprint by experienced data scientists.

The industry partners will be matched with 3-4 Fellows, who will provide an early stage prototype of a product or concept, and thus “de-risk” data science adoption for the company. The industry partner will be available to the Fellows as a subject matter expert, to help produce a successful product.

This program is run with support from the Calgary Innovation Coalition & Alberta Innovates Regional Innovation Networks. To learn more about eligibility, past fellowship programs, or to register, visit the Fellowship’s website.
