Social Science Research Council announces Just Tech Fellowships

The Social Science Research Council has announced the Just Tech Fellowship, a remote, two-year, full-time research fellowship that invites researchers and practitioners to identify and challenge injustices emerging from new technologies and identify solutions that advance social, political, and economic rights.

The fellowship offers two-year unrestricted awards of $100,000 per year, designed to support the researcher’s work as well as invest in their whole person and build a supportive community. In addition, fellows receive supplementary funding packages to subsidize additional expenses, and seed funding to work on collaborative projects with other Just Tech Fellows.

A public information session will be available on December 9, at 10:00 a.m. ET, and expressions of interest (which must be submitted in order to apply for the fellowship) are due on January 2, 2022, at 11:59 p.m. ET. Full application materials will be due on January 30, 2022, at 11:59 p.m. ET.
