Data & Society is assembling its fourth class of fellows to join us from September 1, 2017, through June 30, 2018.This program is core to Data & Society’s dual mission of producing rigorous research that can have impact, and supporting and connecting the young but growing field of actors working on the social, cultural, and political effects of data.

The Data & Society fellowship is intended to produce public-facing outputs, to support fellows in engaging external actors – be they communities of practice, professional communities, a particular academic discipline, or the general public – and to foster collaborative activities within the D&S cohort and beyond that strengthen the fields in which we are working.

As we build a cohort for 2017-18, we’ll be prioritizing applicants who are excited about connecting with and contributing to these growing communities concerned with the effects of data on society. Put differently, this is not a fellowship program for those who want to spend a year in focused, independent research; rather, this is a program for people who can see the value of their work on a bigger stage and are looking for ways to create impact outside their own field.
