Fellowship covers information challenges [Worldwide]

Posted on Jul 27, 2022 in Combating Mis- and Disinformation

Experienced journalists and other media professionals are eligible for a fellowship on information challenges.

The Information Futures Lab at Brown University is offering the Spring 2023 Information Futures Fellowship. The program is a novel opportunity for practitioners who are actively working on responses to the ongoing information crisis.

During the six-month fellowship, IF Fellows will develop, implement and evaluate pilots quickly, as they iterate with an urgency that matches the magnitude of the information challenge. Topic areas of interest for 2023 include but are not limited to pandemics and epidemics, climate change and gun violence.

Applicants can propose entirely new projects, or those that are already under way but need new insights, iteration and evaluation. 

The first cohort of Information Futures Fellows will start in January 2023.

A salary of US$35,000 for the fellowship period is available for fellows. All fellows are eligible for project/program support of up to US$10,000 and travel expenses of up to US$2,000 (domestic) and US$5,000 (international). 

The deadline is Aug. 15.
