Tech + Society Fellowship: Call for Proposals

Tech + Society Fellowship: Call for Proposals

Are you an experienced technologist interested in working more deeply at the intersection of technology and social justice issues you care about?

Tech + Society Fellowship: Call for Proposals

This fellowship is focused at the intersection of technology and civil society and exists in part because of the power—and resource—imbalance that public interest technologists and civil society organizations in the Global Majority are experiencing.

Critical civil society organizations fight inequality, protect the public, and partner with the public sector to serve citizenry. In the era of ubiquitous technology, it’s paramount that civil society also work to address societal issues, as they converge with the digital world. Increasing collective impact at the intersection of technology and society will help fortify the relevance and sustainability of public interest movements and technologists —and help to advance a more human-centered internet.

This fellowship is designed to bring technological strategists and civil society leaders together into collaboration. By pairing technologists [as fellows] with civil society organizations [as host organizations], the program aims to increase the impact of the organizations’ work and enhance their ability to address societal issues that intersect with technology. This is rooted in the idea that technologists and civil society leaders both come to the table with essential expertise: the fellows bring a wealth of technical know-how, while the host organizations bring a deep understanding of how technology broadly — and in some cases AI specifically — is impacting the communities they serve. This fellowship also serves to expand the leadership capacity of fellows by providing opportunities to deeply impact local movements, meaningfully connect to a global community of other public interest leaders, amplify their impact, and find the space and support to explore personal projects.

Fellows will join a cohort of public interest technologists and human rights organizations from Eastern Africa, MENA, Brazil, India, and Mexico. The fellowship is an opportunity for technologists and civil society organizations, each with their own unique areas of expertise, to work in collaboration with one another and the cohort in a shared purpose.
