Faculty and Student Team (FAST) Initiative
The FAST teams
The FAST program deliberately targets faculty and their students at US institutions with strong track records of serving underrepresented minority students. Each year, a cohort of three FAST scholar teams will be matched with established SDSS partner/collaborator to tackle a research project together. This can be a new project or one that’s already defined.
The FAST program provides teams with specialized training, data rights, and financial support to help them begin working with SDSS data. Ultimately the goal is that FAST teams will build long-term research relationships with SDSS collaborators and be a lasting and productive part of the collaboration.
The application process for the next round of FAST teams will start in late Fall 2018, and more information will be available closer to that date. If you have any questions, please contact Jesus Pando, the FAST Science Liaison.
