Fellow Opportunity: $100,00.00/Year Two Years. Social Science Research Council

Just Tech Fellowship

The Social Science Research Council is proud to announce that we are seeking applicants for the third cohort of the Just Tech Fellowship. This fellowship supports and mobilizes diverse and cross-sector cohorts of practitioners to imagine and create more just, equitable, and representative technological futures. Fellows have committed to identifying and challenging injustices emerging from new technologies and pursuing solutions that advance social, political, and economic rights.

Fellows receive two-year awards of $100,000 annually, robust supplementary funding to subsidize additional expenses, and separate seed funding to collaborate with other Just Tech Fellows. The fellowship believes that this model of Whole Person support provides the space and time necessary for deep reflection, an engaged community, and opportunities for ambitious cocreation.

The application portal will open on November 17, 2023. Completed applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. The last day to submit Application Materials is January 31, 2024, at 11:59 p.m. EST.

We find ourselves at a critical juncture where technology rapidly alters the fabric of what we once knew. History has shown us that policymakers and Big Tech titans should not be the only forces guiding our trajectory in these times of change. Investigations into technology’s uneven political and social impacts must be better understood by the general public and included in policy decisions.
The Just Tech Fellowship recognizes that our communities are home to brilliant artists, activists, technologists, and thinkers who have laid fertile soil for equitable change. They need an ecosystem of care to continue their work. As the world reckons with a global legacy of systemic discrimination, we can reimagine the limits and potential of new technology and ensure that expertise and experiential knowledge inform efforts to produce structural change. The Just Tech Fellowship and its fellows seek to build technological futures that celebrate and manifest justice, equity, agency, knowledge, and joy.
