Hosted by Citadel LLC and Citadel Securities in partnership with Correlation One, the Data Open invites students to apply for our annual competitions.

Taking place this Spring season, we will be hosting in-person West Coast Datathon and a virtual West Coast Terminal. Top performing students have the opportunity to win USD$15,000 in cash prizes and exclusive recruiting opportunities with Citadel. The event is open to all current undergraduate, graduate, and Ph.D. students.

  • February 13 – 21: Virtual West Coast Regional Terminal

Terminal is an online game where software engineers and computer scientists (or anyone else interested in coding!) build an algorithm to play a tower defense game in a team-based setting. Watch this video to see Terminal in action! 


  • March 10-11: In-Person West Coast Regional Datathon

Datathons are data science competitions that challenge students from the world’s best universities to tackle real-world social challenges in topics such as urban traffic, renewable energy, and education. 


Admissions are made on a rolling basis, so I encourage you to complete your application before we reach full capacity. 

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at competitions@correlation-one.com if you have any questions. Good Luck!
