DSI Welcomes 2022 SUDS Scholars

The Data Sciences Institute (DSI) welcomes 36 carefully selected undergraduate students from across Canada for a rich data sciences research experience. Through the 2022 SUDS Research Program, undergraduate students interested in exploring data science as a career path, have an exciting opportunity to engage in hands-on research supervised by DSI member researchers across the three UofT campuses and external partners. SUDS research opportunities are solicited from UofT faculty members and funding partner scientists focused on data sciences methodology applications in any research area.
