GivingTuesday Data Commons Fellowship

The GivingTuesday Data Commons invites graduate students (masters level and PhD candidates), postdocs, and exceptional undergraduate students to apply for the GivingTuesday Data Commons Fellowship Program.

Selected Fellows will be awarded a research grant to support the conduct of a research proposal, designed and carried out by the Fellow, that will advance the understanding of the nonprofit and philanthropy sector – including but not limited to donor behavior, economic forces, data management, best practices, etc.

GivingTuesday believes that the most radical liberatory futures and innovative technologies are being built by communities that have been pushed to the margins. GivingTuesday encourages students of all backgrounds, lived experiences, and identities to apply for the Data Commons Fellowship, particularly individuals who have not had equal access to opportunities because of their race, gender, class, sexuality, immigration/documentation status, age, or disability.
