The Digital Imaging and Vision Applications in Science Alliance is a community of student scholars, most majoring in the natural sciences, and faculty supporting each other in developing computational problem-solving skills that are in high demand in medicine, agriculture, basic research, and industry. The Alliance is funded by the NSF and is led by Doane and American University. Other Alliance members include the University of Nebraska - Kearney, the University of Nebraska - Omaha, and the University of Michigan. Scholars work together across the Alliance to find and measure interesting features in image data sets. The program lasts one year and includes two one-credit seminars and five weeks of summer training. Scholars earn $3,260 in stipends. Scholars also have the opportunity to present their experiences and finding at regional and national meetings.
