University of Virginia Data Science Institute Endowment
The Quantitative Foundation provided the funding to create the University of Virginia Data Science Institute Endowment. The Endowment, which supports the Data Science Institute, will be used at the discretion of the Institute's director. The University established the Data Science Institute to prepare the next generation of leaders to address the broadly identified interdisciplinary challenge of data science. The Institute provides a unique confluence of computation, science, engineering, mathematics, statistics, commerce, social science, law, humanities, and more. Our interdisciplinary approach will combine core research strengths in data science, the supporting cyberinfrastructure, and each of the disciplines at UVA.
