We’re currently seeking applications for the 2017-2018 academic year. Applications are due May 31, 2017. Learn more or apply here.

We’re looking for students who are curious about the ways that technology affects the world around them. You don’t have to be a software engineer to build a website or visualize data, but comfort around technology can set you apart in the job market or graduate school. The goal of this fellowship program is to give students the opportunity to develop technology skills and share what they’ve learned with others.

This fellowship program is made possible by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
