2019 Applied Data Fellowship Application
Do you want to work at the intersection of data analysis and public policy in the US?

The IIC's Applied Data Fellowship is a unique opportunity to spend one year working to design and implement high impact programs with government and large non-profits in the United States. Specifically, Fellows will work to help translate data-driven insights into actionable policy recommendations, new programs, and operational changes for the partners they serve.

Fellows will be directly embedded into government and non-profit host institutions for one year. In addition to hands-on experience implementing data insights and working closely with senior-level stakeholders, Fellows will also receive managerial oversight from experienced development-sector consultants and technical support in the form of data analysis training and oversight. Fellows will also receive one-on-one career support through the year so as to help meet their post-fellowship career goals.

Exceptional candidates will have a good understanding of the policy domain, strong data analysis skills, and a deep desire to innovate and operationalize programs within the government and non-profit sectors to achieve impact.

Fellows will be provided with a living stipend of $40,000 for the year. Upon selection for the IIC's Applied Data Fellowship, there will be an IIC led matching process. The IIC allows partners to drive the final placement of Fellow(s) on their teams as it facilitates additional buy-in from their organization.

Applications will be considered on a rolling basis, and applicants are encouraged to apply early. OPT candidates and UChicago alumni are welcome to apply.
