“I use ‘disruptive’ in both its good and bad connotations. Disruptive scientific and technological progress is not to me inherently good or inherently evil. But its arc is for us to shape. Technology’s progress is furthermore in my judgment unstoppable. But it is quite incorrect that it unfolds inexorably according to its own internal logic and the laws of nature.”
Applicants should identify one or more faculty members at Harvard who could serve as mentors and identify the new work they plan to do as part of this fellowship.
Fellows are provided with a stipend, benefits, and some support for research and travel expenses. Each fellow, in consultation with Program Director Dan Schrag, will be assigned a faculty mentor affiliated with STPP to supervise his or her research. We anticipate that the mentors will be active participants in the research activities.
There is no stipend information available for this fellowship.
