Digital Civil Society Lab Non-Resident Fellowship 2020 in the United States of America (USA)

Applications for the 2020 Non-Resident Fellowship are now open.

Eligible Countries: International

To be Taken at (Country): USA

About the Award: The Non-Resident Fellowship supports social sector leaders to dedicate time to working on ideas that apply to broad swaths of civil society but that may not quite fit into their “day job.” The fellowship provides time, space, expertise, and financial support to help turn ideas into prototypes or action and to build a cohort of fellows to support ongoing learning and community.

Type: Fellowship

Eligibility: The Non-Resident Fellowship is open to applicants 18 years of age or older who meet the following conditions:

  • Meet all submission deadlines and submit the application in English;
  • Commit to spending twelve months undertaking a project addressing one of two topical tracks: Digital Civil Society, or Race and Technology;
  • Commit to contributing a final written report, video or audio interview;
  • Commit to attending a week-long convening of the fellowship cohort at Stanford University, January 20-24, 2020. This week involves an introduction to the Lab and its research goals and activities, opportunities to meet other communities on campus, independent time to interact with scholars and research institutes on campus and in the area, and the development of individual year-long work plans. Fellows are encouraged to engage with and imagine/identify additional collective activities for their cohort.
  • Please note that your initiative cannot involve a political campaign or legislative lobbying efforts.

Selection Criteria: The selection process will take into consideration the following criteria:

  • Potential impact
    • Does the project address a question or challenge that is broadly relevant across civil society?
    • Will the project contribute significant new knowledge or create substantial positive change?
    • Does the Fellow demonstrate a deep understanding of the issue their project addresses?
    • Will the Fellow and the project benefit from engagement with an academic research community?
  • Quality of project proposal
    • Is the project plan thoughtful and well-articulated?
    • Have potential risks and challenges received adequate consideration?
    • Are goals, timelines, and deliverables realistic?
    • Has the applicant identified potential partnerships that will catalyze the project?

Number of Awards: Not specified

Value of Award: All fellows will receive:

  • A $20,000 stipend, paid at the beginning of the fellowship, to support work on a year-long project.
  • A week-long in-person convening of the cohort on the Stanford campus, January 20-24, 2020. 
  • Travel support to cover the cost of attending the January 2020 week-long convening.
  • Project support up to $5,000 to support additional project-related travel and expenses as appropriate.
  • Mentorship from fellowship directors and access to fellowship alumni from previous cohorts.
