Student Researchers

The majority of students participate in Discovery as Student Researchers. They can apply to projects of their interest and work in teams throughout the semester on a research or social impact project under the guidance of a project mentor. Student Researchers earn academic units as they complete their project with their team, but they do not enroll in a formally scheduled class. 


Research Partners

Discovery is dedicated to providing top-notch data science capacity to our project partners while also fostering a unique learning environment for our students. Project partners should design projects so that a team of students can be engaged over the course of a single or multiple semesters (a semester is about 12 weeks of work). Projects should include a strong data component, and a dataset must be available by the start of the semester. Project partners can submit multiple projects.
