Pacific Alliance for Low-income Inclusion in Statistics and Data Science


PALiISaDS is a new program featuring seven public higher education institutions on the U.S. West Coast ("the Alliance"). Funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation, PALiISaDS offers a cohort-based bridge program for Statistics and/or Data Science majors in the last two years of undergraduate study and first year of graduate school. PALiISaDS Scholars will receive need-based scholarships of up to $10,000 per year, as well as academic and career support. Scholars enter the program in their penultimate year of undergraduate studies (either as rising juniors or transfer students). Up to three years of assistance is available to students continuing on to graduate school within the Alliance. PALiISaDS will also include an array of community-building activities, faculty and peer mentoring, help with graduate school applications, and much more. We invite you to explore the site and join us!
