Fellowship programme update: applications now closed!

March 11, 2015 in Fellowship
Update, 07/04/2015: We’ve updated our schedule: we’ll be starting the fellowship a week later than planned, on April 20th – and we’ll aim to let everyone know a decision by April 13th, at the very latest. Our apologies for the delay – the great quality and quantity of applications has made choosing just 7 fellows very difficult. Thank you for your patience!

The call for 2015 Fellowships has now closed – thank you all for your applications! We have received many more applications than we had hoped for – in total, we have received 563 fellowships applications from 82 different countries. We’re humbled and grateful that you all took the time to apply, and we wish that we had more places available!

We want to dedicate enough time to read through all of the great applications; because of this, we’ve decided to postpone the start of the Fellowship to give us, and our local partners, enough time to dedicate to reviewing the applications with the time and energy they deserve.

Our new proposed start date for the fellowship is April 13th, and we will let you know of our decision by April 7th. We really hope this doesn’t affect anybody’s plans negatively, or impact their availability for the fellowship – if it does, please drop us an email to info[at]schoolofdata.org and we’ll do our best to accommodate you.

We will be updating the Fellowships FAQ with further information and in answer to your questions as they come in – anything else, please email us as above, and keep an eye on the FAQ page.

A huge thank you to all of our partners and the School of Data network who shared the call for Fellows very widely – we really appreciate your help on spreading the word!

Flattr this!
