The Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University is now accepting fellowship applications for the 2017-2018 academic year through their annual open call. The program provides an opportunity for some of the world’s most innovative thinkers and changemakers to come together to hone and share ideas, find camaraderie, and spawn new initiatives. This opportunity is for those who wish to spend 2017-2018 in residence in Cambridge, MA who seek to engage in a collaborative, cross-disciplinary, and cross-sectoral exploration of some of the Internet’s most important and compelling issues.
The Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University is dedicated to exploring, understanding, and shaping the development of the digitally networked environment.
- The applications are welcomed from people who feel that a year in our community as a fellow would accelerate their efforts and contribute to their ongoing personal and professional development.
- Fellows come from across the disciplinary spectrum and different life paths. Some fellows are academics, whether students, post-docs, or professors. Others come from outside academia and are technologists, entrepreneurs, lawyers, policymakers, activists, journalists, educators, or other types of practitioners from various sectors.
