Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University - Open Call for Fellowship Applications for the 2019-2020 Academic Year

The Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard
University is now accepting fellowship applications for the
2019-2020 academic year through our annual open call. This
opportunity is for those who wish to spend 2019-2020 in residence
in Cambridge, MA as part of the Center's vibrant community of
research and practice, and who seek to engage in collaborative,
cross-disciplinary, and cross-sectoral exploration of some of the
Internet's most important and compelling issues.

Fellows are supported in an inviting and playful intellectual
environment - we have community activities designed to foster
inquiry and risk-taking, to identify and expose common threads
across fellows’ individual activities, and to bring fellows into
conversation with the students, staff, faculty, and broader
community at the Berkman Klein Center.

We invite applications from people working on a broad range of
opportunities and challenges related to Internet and society,
which may overlap with ongoing work at the Berkman Klein Center
and may expose our community to new opportunities and approaches.
We encourage applications from scholars, practitioners,
innovators, engineers, artists, and others committed to
understanding and advancing the public interest who come from —and
have interest in — countries industrialized or developing, with
ideas, projects, or activities in all phases on a spectrum from
incubation to reflection.

To make fellowships a possibility for as wide a range of applicants
as possible, in the 2019-2020 academic year we will award a small
number of stipends to incoming fellows. This funding is intended to
support people from communities who are underrepresented in fields
related to Internet and society, who will contribute to the
diversity of the Berkman Klein Center’s research and activities, and
who have financial need.  More information about this funding
opportunity may be found here.

The work and well-being of the Berkman Klein Center for
Internet & Society are profoundly strengthened by the
diversity of our network and our differences in background,
culture, experience, national origin, religion, sexual
orientation, gender, gender identity, race, ethnicity, age,
ability, and much more.  We actively seek and welcome people of
color, women, the LGBTQIA+ community, persons with disabilities,
and people at intersections of these identities, from across the
spectrum of disciplines and methods.

The full call for applications may be found at: https://cyber.harvard.edu/getinvolved/fellowships/1920Fellows

Applications will be accepted until Friday January 18, 2019 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time.
