Apply for the Rebooting Social Media Assembly Fellowship
Applications due May 6, 2022
The Institute for Rebooting Social Media is assembling an interdisciplinary cohort of RSM Assembly Fellows from across sectors—including designers, engineers, policy experts, advocates, and creators—who are building projects that help reimagine the digital social space to better support democratic governance.
This six-month fellowship will be hybrid. In-person attendance in Cambridge is required for the first week in early October 2022, a midpoint, and the final week of the program in March 2023. For the remaining weeks, residency in Cambridge is not required but can be beneficial to Institute Fellows’ work.
The Institute for Rebooting Social Media and its programs are supported by generous contributions from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, Reid Hoffman, and Craig Newmark Philanthropies.
In addition, the Berkman Klein Center is grateful for new support for the Institute for Rebooting Social Media from Archewell Foundation. Archewell Foundation’s engagement will help amplify projects within the Institute, connecting them to culture and narrative change efforts. Archewell Foundation will also support the new Assembly Fellowship.
The Institute for Rebooting Social Media is among a series of philanthropic grants by Archewell Foundation, which you can read about here, including UCLA’s Center for Critical Internet Inquiry, Color Of Change, URL Media, and Cortico’s Local Voices Network from MIT Media Lab. We are delighted to be among these outstanding and effective organizations.
