Our fellowship programme aims to to recruit and train the next generation of data leaders and trainers to magnify the reach of our data literacy programme. The fellows will provide training and ongoing support to journalists, civil society organisations, and individual change-makers to use data effectively within their community and country. We are looking for applicants who already have connections to a network of data-literacy enthusiasts, or have some link with a particular organisation working in this field.
We recruit fellows on an annual basis, and provide them with data and leadership training as well as coaching to organise events and build their community. Our fellows are part of a growing global network of School of Data practitioners, benefiting from the network effects of sharing resources and knowledge and contributing to our understanding of how best to localise our training efforts.
We will be recruiting up to 10 fellowship positions in 2016. These fellowships will run from April to December. We have current collaborations and resourcing confirmed to support 6 fellows, two of whom must be based in either El Salvador, Guatemala or Honduras.
Our goal is to have fellows from a wide mix of countries all over the world.
This application will be open until the 10th of March 2016.
OK, let's go!
