The Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University and we've just announced our open call for fellowship applications for the 2018-2019 academic year. We're a public interest research center and community working to explore the Internet and new digital developments.
Fellowships at the Center are opportunities for those who wish to spend 2018-2019 in residence in Cambridge, MA as part of the our 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 faculty directors, employees, 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 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 2018-2019 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.
Applications will be accepted until Wednesday January 31, 2018 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time.
