Lucy Graduate Scholars play a key role in shaping the programming and opportunities offered by the Lucy Family Institute. Scholars attend monthly luncheons to discuss research progress and challenges, present at the Annual Lucy Symposium, and design community-building events for graduate students across the University that are responsive to pressing topics at the intersection of data science and society.
Additionally, Lucy Graduate Scholars receive $3,000 (either as a stipend top-up or towards professional development activities) for each year that they participate in the program.
