Fair Count, Inc., announced the Science for Social Equity initiative and a call for fellowship applicants, seeking activists and researchers looking to jointly tackle some of today’s most pressing social issues.
Targeting critical research areas like the environment and public health, the goal of Science for Social Equity is to pair community organizers with scientific researchers so they can work together on science-related issues that impact marginalized and underrepresented communities.
Each fellow will receive a $2,000 stipend and training focused on project management, organizing, communications, leadership, and fundraising. Fellows will be paired based on their targeted research area, and each pair will work together to address the program objectives.
The deadline to apply is March 20. For more information or to apply, visit ScienceForSocialequity.org.
