Community Partner - Non-profit Organization

If you are a non-profit organization envisioning a better use for your data, we are excited to invite you apply for future Data Dives! Stay tuned for updates and key communications for next year's event! For more information, please refer to the previous Data Dive participants page to learn about what other organizations have done in the past!

Participation in the Data Dive happens through an application process and is awarded on a competitive basis. Be sure to give us as much information as you can - the more we know about you, the better we can assess our ability to help you!

Community Partner Consultant

The Community Partner Consultants will work with the client to segment their needs, explore the data potentials, draft the solution framework, and assess the scope of the project they will present to the participants on the day of the data dive. Consultants will prepare articulated questions for participants to solve. During the Data Dive, the team will also organize participants to present and deliver solutions to the clients. One community partner consultant team will be assigned to each community partner and lead a hoard of participants in the electrifying charge of piecing together a story from the data!

We welcome all full time students of the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor at all educational levels (you must be pursuing your bachelors degree at the very least) to apply. Registration for 2019/2020 Community Team Partner Consultant positions will open in Fall 2019.

Data Dive Participant

A Data Dive participant is anyone who serves under the direction of a community partner consultant team during the Data Dive event, and is expected to conduct data analysis, and communicate findings with the assigned Community Partner Consultant team. We welcome people of all skill levels, and will hold bootcamps throughout the year to help you all prepare for your exciting data journey!


We would love to have sponsors to enhance the event's experience. Feel free to contact us at if you are interested in contributing funding or by providing goods and other services to help us put together as enriching an event as possible.
