Non-resident fellows at the Digital Civil Society Lab are civil society professionals pursuing concrete projects with the potential to inform and transform digital civil society broadly.
Fellows participate in, and help inform the design of, the Digital Civil Society Lab’s research workshops, conferences, and seminars, while working with Lab affiliates on a specific question or challenge facing civil society in the digital age.
Typically fellowship terms are one year and include multiple visits to Stanford, for several days to several weeks at a time, including one week where all fellows convene simultaneously. Fellows are connected with the Digital Civil Society Lab’s networks at Stanford and beyond.
