Applications are open for the 2018 Bloomberg Data Science Research Grant Program.
Bloomberg invites academic researchers worldwide to apply for unrestricted gifts that support research in data science, typically focusing on natural language processing, information retrieval, machine learning, and data mining. We also invite proposals for creation of, or contributions to, open source software used for data science.
Faculty members, research scientists, and post-doctoral fellows at universities worldwide are eligible to serve as Principal Investigators (PIs). A PI can lead one proposal per cycle, but can serve as co-PI on other proposals.
Budget: Along with the total amount (in USD) requested in the proposal, it should also provide a brief breakdown of the direct costs, including: student/post-doc stipend, tuition fees, conference travel, and hardware. Typically, we fund one student for one year, which is often $40,000 to $70,000. Indirect costs such as administrative overhead will not be funded
The deadline is March 15, 2018.
