NON-RESIDENT FELLOWSHIPS – DIGITAL CIVIL SOCIETY LAB
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.
Each fellow will pursue a project or set of activities of their own design over the course of the fellowship. Applicants pursuing projects that are already in progress, as well as projects that may not be fully completed within one year, are eligible to apply.
Fellows are expected to engage as a cohort with the other Non-Resident Fellows as well as with Stanford postdoctoral fellows, faculty, and student researchers.
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?
Opportunity Focus Areas:
- Civil engagement.
- Social Studies.
