For Researchers

Sponsor a data science capstone project

  • Sponsoring a D2K capstone project is a great way to jump-start a collaborative data science research project!
  • Researchers at Rice University and in the Texas Medical Center are eligible to sponsor a student team.
  • There is no sponsorship fee for Rice faculty, but we ask that researchers fully prepare their project for the D2K Capstone program and commit to spending at least one hour a week mentoring the student team.
  • A preference will be shown to researchers who are already collaborating with a Rice data science faculty member that has agreed to co-mentor the team.

See examples of past research projects in D2K Capstone.

Interested in mentoring a student team?

Rice data science faculty mentors are an integral part of the D2K Capstone Program, providing guidance and support throughout the course of the project. Please contact us if you are interested in mentoring a team.
