Galvanize announced an expanded partnership with Google for Entrepreneurs to support scholarship opportunities at GalvanizeU, a new, accredited master's degree program designed to address the demand for industry ready data scientists.
As part of a larger partnership with Galvanize, Google for Entrepreneurs will provide scholarship funds for GalvanizeU to cover tuition costs for students in the 12 month program.
This tuition reduction will allow more students from underrepresented groups - such as women, minorities, and people who identify as LGBT- to participate in the first cohort of GalvanizeU.
In addition to diversity focused scholarships, all students enrolled in the GalvanizeU program will be eligible to apply for federal financial aid.
"This is the first of many partnerships we will build to bring diversity to data science and begin to dehomogenize the tech industry. Regardless of their background, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or gender, we want students who are going to bring fresh ideas to the field of big data," said Jim Deters, CEO of Galvanize.
Similar to other existing educational offerings from Galvanize, the Master's in Data Science program is designed to give students real world training through hands on mentorship with practicing data scientists, internships and daily lab workshops. Participants in the program will have the opportunity to work with robust data as part of their capstone project.
"Diversity is a core value for Google for Entrepreneurs," said John Lyman, Head of Partnerships and Marketing at Google. "Partnering with Galvanize is one way we're working to improve access to opportunity and ultimately increase the diversity of the tech center."
GalvanizeU's offerings are for recent graduates from engineering, mathematics, computer science, and other technical disciplines, or working professionals who are excited to learn about the field of data science.
The first cohort begins in January 2015 at Galvanize's San Francisco campus.
