2022 Just Tech Fellows
The Just Tech Fellowship provides unrestricted awards for researchers and practitioners investigating the uneven benefits and harms of technology and imagining futures that embrace joy, hope, self-determination, and equity. Just Tech Fellows engage with and shape public conversations about the role of tech in society, mobilize and work with affected communities, and prototype new tools, methods, and practices to engender more just and equitable technological systems.

The Just Tech program foregrounds questions of power, equity, and the public impact of new technologies, investigating evidence of bias and harm while centering the perspectives of historically marginalized communities. Just Tech builds on the SSRC’s tradition of supporting rigorous research to advance the public good, while offering a new model for holistic support—designed not only to fund research, but also to provide time and space for restoration, collaboration, and exploration. Through the Fellowship, the Just Tech digital platform, and by building critical connections in the field, the program creates a thriving ecosystem of research and social engagement.
