We look for fellows who are:

  • Working across disciplines at the intersection of technology and the liberal arts 

  • Inspired by what’s possible, not just what’s broken 

  • Unusually talented, but undiscovered and ready to break through 

  • Especially curious pattern-seekers and dot-connectors—the ones who see things differently 

  • Generous spirits, moved to make something uncommonly useful or beautiful for the rest of us

  • Self-starters who persist through the challenges of creative work

  • From a diversity of backgrounds, with a range of perspectives, strengths, and approaches

Eligible candidates must:

  • Be between the ages of 21 and 26

  • Receive a nomination (self-nominations will not be accepted) 

  • Attend part-time programming between September 2024 and September 2025, including:

    • Monthly virtual programming (approximately 2–3 hours per month) 

    • Two in-person gatherings (approximately 2–3 days each) 

  • Reside in the U.S. during their fellowship year (the Archive does not sponsor visas in connection with this program)

Key dates: 

  • April 16–May 14, 2024: Application period

  • May–June 2024: Interviews with finalists

  • August 2024: Selection (We will notify all applicants of their status at this time.) 

  • September 2024: Programming begins

Technology is nothing. What’s important is that you have a faith in people, that they’re basically good and smart and if you give them tools, they’ll do wonderful things with them.

Steve, 1994
