The Center for Information Technology Policy fellows program offers scholars and practitioners from diverse backgrounds the opportunity to join the Center’s community.

Application review will begin in the middle of December, and we welcome applications from anyone working at the intersection of digital technology and public life. In this application cycle, we especially welcome applicants with interests in: Artificial Intelligence (AI), Data Science, Blockchain, and Cryptocurrencies.
