Apply for a fellowship opportunity from the Social Science Research Council — learn more December 1 and 9

The Social Science Research Council is accepting expressions of interest for our Just Tech Fellowship, a groundbreaking new initiative from SSRC’s Just Tech program. Just Tech foregrounds questions of power, justice and the public impact of new technologies, investigating evidence of bias and harms while imagining and creating more just technological futures.

The Just Tech Fellowship is a remote, two-year, full-time research fellowship that invests in a diverse community of researchers and practitioners who will identify and challenge injustices emerging from new technologies and identify solutions that advance social, political, and economic rights.

The Just Tech Fellowship is designed not only to support a researcher’s work but also to invest in their entire person and build a supportive community. The fellowship offers two-year unrestricted awards of $100,000 per year with the intention of opening space, time and resources for fellows as they envision and enact more just technological futures. The awards are augmented by robust supplementary funding packages to subsidize dependent care, health care, work space, technical equipment, project materials, communications or other needs.
