The Just Tech Fellowship, a project of the Social Science Research Council, has announced the inaugural class of Just Tech Fellows, each of whom will each receive two-year fellowships to tackle complex issues at the intersection of tech and social justice.
The Fellowship provides unrestricted awards of $250K+ over two years for researchers and practitioners imagining radically different tech futures that embrace joy, hope, self-determination, and equity. "It is a model of transformation," says Safiya Umoja Noble, 2021 MacArthur Fellow and Just Tech Steering Committee Member. "We are asking people who understand the consequences of a world reimagined by technology what they need to accelerate true positive impact."
The fellowship, which had received 600 applications, "supports tool-builders who are creating the instruments we need to shape a more just and humane technological future," says SSRC President Anna Harvey.
