Posted on Sunday, January 21, 2024
QuantHub is proud to launch Alabama Data Scholars, an 8-week summer internship and skills development program designed to introduce high school juniors and seniors across the state to high-demand careers in the growing field of data science.

The inaugural class of 25 Alabama Data Scholars will be placed into internships with innovative organizations leveraging data to drive business and make a positive impact on the state.

During the program session, Scholars will also:

  • Build valuable skills in data analysis, visualization, business analytics, statistics, Python, and SQL
  • Gain exposure to emerging artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) applications
  • Explore academic opportunities at Alabama colleges and universities
  • Hear from special guest speakers
  • Participate in professional development and mentoring activities
  • Network with industry leaders and a diverse cohort of like-minded peers
  • Receive a $500 scholarship awarded upon successful program completion

Eligibility

Applications are open now through March 1, and any Alabama high school junior or senior who will be at least 16 years old by June 1 is eligible to participate. Please visit quanthub.com/intern to apply.

No prior experience or skills are necessary to apply. Students interested in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) careers may benefit most from participation, but all students eager to learn are welcome and encouraged to submit an application.

Virtual and in-person internship opportunities will be available, and Scholars must be able to commit approximately 20 hrs/week to both “live” and asynchronous activities for the duration of the program.

Selection Criteria & Timeline

Application review will begin after the March 1 deadline. Finalists will be announced by March 15.

Finalists will be determined based on a combination of factors including: interest in data science careers and data skills development, academics and extracurricular involvement, engagement in QuantHub, and a demonstrated desire to innovate and drive positive change in Alabama.

The 2024 Data Scholars cohort and internship assignments will be announced on or before May 1.

We are limited to 25 Scholars for the summer 2024 program.

Benefits

Scholars will gain high-demand technical skills, a strong professional network and mentoring, and a $500 scholarship awarded upon program completion.
