Announcing: The Impact Fellowship 2024!
The 7th annual Impact Fellowship will be held this upcoming January in San Francisco!
We’re absolutely thrilled to announce that applications for The Impact Fellowship 2024 are now officially open! WOOOOHOOOOO! 🎉
The Impact Fellowship is a 2-week in-person program for young engineers who hope to use their technical skills to make a positive, lasting change in the world. Fellows spend their time meeting with social entrepreneurs, activists, artists, philanthropists, researchers, and engineers who are leveraging their talents for the public good, and the program also features hands-on technical education workshops for fellows looking to level-up their practical software skills. Fellows have the opportunity to collaborate with one another on a high-impact project of their own creation, and most importantly, fellows plug into a network of like-minded, ambitiously altruistic peers seeking to harness their energy for the betterment of society and our earth! The Impact Fellowship is part speaker series, part bootcamp, part hackathon, and part community retreat.
This year will be the 7th annual Impact Fellowship and our very first one in a new location! After 6 years in New York City, the fellowship will be headquartered this year at a beautiful office space in San Francisco, CA! We couldn’t be more excited to deepen our presence on the West Coast (best coast!) and connect with the heartland of the tech scene. It is our opinion that the Bay Area needs more thoughtful, purposeful, kind-hearted technologists who aren’t afraid to meaningfully critique and challenge the status quo of the SF tech world, and we’re optimistic that The Impact Fellowship will be an opportunity for us to introduce more nuanced dialogue and experimentation in the 2023 tech landscape.
The Impact Fellowship is designed for STEM students who are currently enrolled in university (either undergrad or grad studies), and is primarily targeted towards software engineers and data scientists. A strong background in computer programming is recommended (though not required) to attend the program, and we have had fellows with backgrounds in electrical engineering, physics, or biology attend in past years. The fellowship is completely free to attend and welcomes applicants from any background or nationality.
Learn more and apply at www.impactlabs.io/fellowship. The fellowship begins on January 3rd and will end on January 17th, 2024. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis and those who apply by October 27th will hear back by November 1st, 2023.
We can’t wait for the new year and we’re so excited to hear from you!
