Your Guide to Data Science Scholarships for 2018

TABLE OF CONTENTS

Unlike some other specialties in information technology, you really can’t just jump in and learn data science on the basis of your analytical talent and hours of trial and error experimentation— it requires a formal education both to understand the complex concepts and to be trained in the tools of the trade. But even as recently as 2012, there wasn’t even a specific degree option for would-be data scientists. A background in math, statistics, or programming was the most common path to a career in the field.

But things have changed a lot since then, with universities scrambling to meet the demand for trained data scientists by bringing specialized programs online that include the combination of statistical analysis and modeling, math, programming and data mining courses that are the hallmark of a true data science program.

Since around 88% of data scientists hold master’s degrees, that means you’ve got an expensive couple of years ahead of you if you’re serious about this field. You’re going to be making a mint when you graduate, but you have to get through it first. And unless you want to be paying down loans for the first decade of your career, scholarships are one of the best ways to make sure that education is affordable.

How to Qualify for a Data Science Scholarship

Every college scholarship has criteria that applicants are going to be expected to meet. You can expect to come across criteria that will include everything from your location (either where you are from or where you will be going to school) and GPA to your gender and ethnicity.

But criteria can also be more subjective, including things like:

  • Written essays on the topic of data science
  • Participation in activities or clubs related to the profession
  • An agreement to commit to completing an internship or taking a job at a designated employer
  • Belonging to a particular organization or finding a sponsor from one

Those basic qualifications are only your first hurdle to clear, though. You won’t just be judged against a list of items on an application form, you’ll also be measured against other candidates looking for those same scholarships. Data science is a hot field and attracts some of the best and the brightest students. You’ll be up against their transcripts and backgrounds, too.

To prepare yourself for that kind of competition, you’ll need some extracurriculars to brag about. This just means being able to show that you have the dedication and perseverance to study outside the requirements of the classroom.

Scholarship awards committees want to know they are putting their money into a candidate who will follow through and contribute to the field after graduation.

Some scholarships, like the Strong Analytics Strong Data Science Scholarship, make the competition even more explicit. Strong’s submission process requires that you perform an analysis on a publicly available dataset and create a presentation on your findings that they will review and judge against those from other competitors.

Competitions of this sort are a great way to both demonstrate your dedication to the field and to help develop your skills, whether you win the award or not.

Your Best Bets for Finding a Data Science Scholarship

Since data science is such a new field, it doesn’t have as many dedicated, well-established scholarship funds as other engineering or technology specialties do. You will probably have to dig deeper and be more creative to find data science scholarships than if you were simply going into computer science.

On there other hand, your best bet for scholarship money might be to find scholarships that do not have anything to do with data science specifically. Instead, scholarships that cover computer science and other STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) fields are often applicable to data science programs.

For example, the Future Leaders of IT Scholarships provide $2,000 to recipients in any information technology-related field of study. These types of scholarships are far more widely available and easier to match with your particular criteria than dedicated data science scholarships.

Organizations Promoting Science Education

There are many organizations promoting science education today, both generally and for particular groups of students who are underrepresented in data science.

The Pride Foundation offers the Friends of Alan Turing Scholarship for LGBTQ students. The $1,500 award is offered in honor of one of the most celebrated mathematicians of our age, who was also persecuted to the point of suicide for being gay.

There are also non-traditional grant options available for students willing to accept certain post-graduation employment conditions. The Department of Defense SMART Scholarship for Service program is open to U.S. citizens who are willing to commit to work either within the military or with the Department of Defense for a certain period after getting their degree.

The program is also restricted to certain pre-approved universities and fields… however, computer science is one of those fields. In 2017, the program made almost 350 awards of up to $38,000. Those are much better odds than you will find at most dedicated data science scholarship programs.

Data-Focused Organizations

Businesses that make their money in data processing, like Oracle, or professional associations that are heavily affiliated with big data, like the Data Processing Management Association, are among those organizations that are likely to offer scholarships for data science students. These are generally offered through local or regional affiliates, such as this one for $1,000 through the Portland Chapter of the association, so it may take some digging to find one for which you are eligible.

Another variation on this theme are scholarships that were originally created to support students in the fields of math or statistics, but which also can be used for data science programs. One example of this is the Mary G. and Joseph Natrella Scholarship, which was established by the American Statistical Association in 2000 to support students conducting research in math and statistics. Although the original benefactors were intended to be statisticians focused on quality control and productivity work, those applications are now squarely within the province of data science.

These are sometimes narrowly focused on certain student groups that have been historically underrepresented in computer and data science. The Xerox Technical Minority Scholarship, for example, is open to qualified minority students earning a technical degree of bachelor’s level or above. The awards range from $1,000 to $10,000.

Sometimes, these scholarships originate from organizations you might not immediately expect to have a big interest in data science. ExxonMobil, however, offers the Bernard Harris Math and Science Scholarship to eligible minority students. The scholarship awards four $5,000 grants each year, two each for males and females, with the recipients selected personally by Dr. Harris, a retired NASA astronaut.

Colleges and Universities

Data science has not yet gone through the lifecycle that results in wealthy, retired data scientists becoming the benefactors of the next generation through endowments, but some college are putting together scholarship funds aimed at data scientists anyway, such as the Western Nebraska Community College John P. Harris Striving for Excellence in Data Processing Scholarship, which is worth $1,200 to some Nebraskan student each year.

Larger universities trying to jump start their new data science programs might also offer scholarships to help bring students in. The New York University Center for Data Science offers tuition scholarships for a limited number of students in their data science master’s degree program, for instance.

Whether the particular school you select offers its own scholarship or not, every college will have a financial aid office and professional advisers who keep tabs on every available form of assistance. This is an invaluable resource for you both in identifying scholarships you might qualify for, and for making sure that your applications dot all the i’s and cross all the t’s required for success.
