Microsoft Research Summer School

This 8-week program sponsored by Microsoft definitely seems like something worth checking out. The deadline to apply is April 17th!

… Cultivating such a broad base of expertise is at the heart of the Microsoft Research Data Science Summer School, an eight-week effort to introduce large-scale data analysis to undergraduate students in the New York City area that is committed to increasing diversity in computer science. The summer school therefore encourages applications from women, minorities, individuals with disabilities, and students from smaller, resource-constrained colleges.

This year’s summer school will run from June 15, 2015 to August 7, 2015. Apply online for the 2015 summer school; please note that the application deadline is April 17.
