Bloomberg’s Data Science Academic Engagement Programs

Bloomberg has announced a Call for Proposals for their 2018 Bloomberg Data Science Research Grant Program, inviting academic researchers worldwide to apply for unrestricted gifts that either support research in data science or the creation of, or contributions to, open source software used for data science. Applications must be submitted by March 15, 2018. Grant decisions will be communicated by May 15, 2018.
