Hi all, this announcement from Data & Society may be of interest. Funding arrangements vary but typically include about $30,000 of support.
An excerpt from the call:
“Data & Society is an NYC-based research institute focused on social, cultural, and ethical issues arising from data-centric technological development.
Data & Society is currently looking to assemble its 2015 class of fellows. The fellowship program brings together an eclectic network of researchers, entrepreneurs, activists, policy creators, journalists, geeks, and public intellectuals who are interested in engaging one another on the key issues introduced by the increasing availability of data in society. We are looking for a diverse group of people who can see both the opportunities and challenges presented by access to data and who have a vision for a project that can inform the public or shape the future of society.
Fellows are the heart and soul of Data & Society and are expected to develop innovative initiatives, interact with people who hold diverse perspectives, and participate in the creation of a growing community. Data & Society is a new organization and many aspects of this program are continuing to evolve. Fellows play a pivotal role in shaping the Institute’s character and formation.”
