Digitally Connected network offers Internet and Society fellowship for people from underrepresented communities

The Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University launched its annual call for fellowship applications to the Digitally Connected network. The program offers financial support to people from communities which are underrepresented in Internet and society fields, enabling them to spend the 2017-2018 academic year performing research at the university.

Selected participants will be invited to engage in collaborative and cross-disciplinary exploration of different internet related topics. Fellows will have the support of faculty directors, employees and the university community in order to learn about the topic and further develop their work related to internet topics. Some examples of research areas include economic growth, privacy, access to information, digital inclusion and regulatory issues, among other things.

 Deadline for applications is January 16, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time. Find more information and apply at their official website
