Insight Data Fall Program

Insight Data Fall Program

The Insight Fellows Program is a seven-week professional training fellowship for working professionals looking to transition to thriving careers as data scientists. The application for our fall sessions is now open at until July 20, 2020.

Insight Data Fall Program Announcement

We’re now accepting applications for our fall sessions.

While Fellows can attend the program from anywhere, they will still interview for roles in their chosen program location. All eligibility criteria still apply. Visit our FAQ page for more information.

As the COVID-19 outbreak continues to have an impact around the world, Insight has made the decision to run our fall programs remotely, in both the U.S. and Canada. We’ve made this decision to protect our Fellows and team, and because we’ve seen that the vast majority of the benefits of Insight translate to the remote experience, and there are actually many additional benefits.

Apply to our fully-remote fall session by July 20:
