Noor-Ul-Ain Ali, ’22, was chosen to receive the Sharon X. Lin and Andrew R. Bullen Graduate Fellowship in Data Science for 2022–23. This fellowship supports one incoming 5th Year Master of Information and Data Science (MIDS) student who shows a commitment to gender equity within the program.

Ali chose MIDS because “I want more in-depth training, more practice, more project experience,” Ali said. “Before I try to do my part in reimagining what data can be in a way that does not harm communities, I need to acquire deeper knowledge of data science methods and how to extract insights from data to inform peoples’ experiences without exploiting them.”

Craig Newmark Philanthropies (CNP), the grantmaking organization launched by the founder of craigslist, has announced a three-year, $1.725M commitment to support the newly established Consortium of Cybersecurity Clinics, a network of organizations working to expand cybersecurity clinics at colleges and universities in the U.S. and around the world — including Berkeley’s Citizen Clinic at the School of Information.

The funding builds on more than half a million dollars gifted by CNP in 2020 and 2021 to incubate the clinic model; the combined gift of over $2M to UC Berkeley represents a core element in Newmark’s $50M pledge to support cyber civil defense.
