This year, IndigiData is a 100% virtual workshop from June 14-17th.

IndigiData is intended to serve as a one-week (4 days) Indigenous Data Science Education workshop each summer to introduce data science and informatics skills to tribal undergraduate and graduate students.

Our first workshop this year will focus on environmental microbiomes and we will walk participants through a guided demonstration of how to use computational skills to analyze sequencing data.

In addition, we offer an Indigenous-centered curriculum that is led by Indigenous data scientists. All of our workshop activities will center Indigenous data sovereignty and data ethics while also providing students valuable insight into the emerging data and technology career fields.

Students will be provided a stipend for their time spent over the workshop.

The IndigiData application deadline is March 1, 2021

2021 IndigiData Application

Applicants will be chosen based on submitted information. The application deadline is March 1, 2021. Applicants will be informed of their status by April 15, 2021.
We may mail some items to workshop participants beforehand to help prepare for the week's events. Please ensure that this is a working mailing address.
Some applicants have additional questions about the workshop. This is just an informal opportunity to ask Program Organizers further details about the program prior to the workshop dates. This question will have no bearing on the application process.
