Data for Good Exchange Awards Program


In connection with Bloomberg LP’s annual Data for Good Exchange conference, Bloomberg LP and NYC Media Lab launched an awards program for faculty from New York City and beyond to apply for impact grants to advance their research focusing on data for social good. The grants offered support for research in collaboration with nonprofit organizations, connecting a range of faculty across many academic disciplines relating to data analysis. The awards program also included prizes for outstanding paper submissions to the Data for Good Exchange conference.

In September 2016, the award winners convened with 500 other data-driven researchers and practitioners at the conference. The winners hailed from institutions and organizations across the United States, including NYU Center for Urban Science and Progress, Pratt Institute, and the University of Chicago’s Center for Data Science and Public Policy.
