Fellowships to USA, Canada, and International historically-marginalized individuals to address inequality in relation to technology. Funding is intended to seek solutions to the harms caused by increased surveillance ability and by the ease with which hate speech and discrimination can proliferate online.
The Just Tech Fellowship and its fellows seek to build toward technological futures that celebrate and manifest justice, equity, agency, knowledge, and joy. Just Tech takes a capacious view of “researchers and practitioners.” Just Tech Fellows come from diverse backgrounds and work across a range of fields and practices, including the arts, journalism, civil society, and the social sciences, the humanities, and computer science. By supporting a vibrant network that reflects diverse communities and life experiences, Just Tech will identify solutions that protect and expand social, political, and economic justice and challenge persistent inequities.
Just Tech is looking for diverse projects across fields focusing on the relationship between technological development, power, and social justice. To that end, they invite fellows to use their particular skill sets in technology, art, activism, research, and policy to develop projects that ultimately lay the groundwork to imagine and create technological futures that celebrate and manifest justice, equity, agency, knowledge, and joy. Proposed projects might include creating a product such as an art installation; a book, or a series of essays or journal articles; developing policy frameworks and interventions; an initiative of a nonprofit organization; designing technological tools; or other creative work products.
The Just Tech Fellowship experience will be collaborative, seeking active points of participation as it evolves. Through regular convenings and workshops, as well as through purposeful engagement with external stakeholders and peer organizations, the fellowship will establish lasting personal and professional connections and will offer practical support and learning opportunities matched to the needs and suggestions of the fellows community.
The Just Tech Fellowship has several related goals:
The Just Tech program will administer two-year awards, augmented by robust supplementary funding packages to subsidize expenses related to dependent care, healthcare, workspace, technical equipment, project materials, communications, or other needs. These innovative awards are designed not only to support a researcher’s work but to invest in their entire person and to build a supportive and collaborative community. Fellows may apply for additional funding to seed collaborative projects within or across Just Tech cohorts.
Estimated Size of Grant:
A two-year, full-time, remote fellowship.
The Fellowship must not begin earlier than August 1, 2023.
The Fellowship ends on June 30, 2025.
