Just Tech Fellowship Public Information Session 1
This information session will consist of an overview of the Just Tech Fellowship, followed by breakout sessions and ending with a Q&A for prospective applicants to ask SSRC’s Just Tech program staff questions about the Just Tech Fellowship.

The Just Tech program 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. Through its groundbreaking new Just Tech Fellowship, the program will support 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.

The program is funded by a broad range of philanthropic foundations committed to cultivating critical work on the intersection of technology and social justice, including the Ford Foundation, the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, the Surdna Foundation, and Democracy Fund.
