Applications are now open through October 15 for the inaugural NSF-funded Socio-Environmental Knowledge Commons (SEEKCommons) Fellowship cohort.
The fellowship aims to bring graduate students, post-doctoral researchers, and professionals from community-based organizations to socio-environmental research with open technologies. The fellowship is designed to encourage new integrative practices involving environmental and climate action research with Open Science practices, and provide a space for Fellows and SEEKCommons network members to connect on research issues/challenges/solutions, and put into practice network resources.
The Fellowship is meant to supplement other commitments, will be nine months in duration (we will also do a second cohort in 2025), and fellows will receive either a $8,000 or $12,000 stipend. Nine fellows will be selected for each cohort.
Fellows may be:
Graduate students working with open technologies on sustainability/climate issues; conducting research with open technology on socio-environmental issues;
Post-docs with existing community projects and initiatives on Science and Technology Studies, Open Science, or Socio-environmental research; or
Community practitioners working with environmental data to advance action or policy who are interested in integrating open practices or technologies into their work.
More information on the fellowship and a link to the application can be found on the SEEKCommons website.
