Introducing the SJA Fellowship

Our first class of young creators

Steve believed that if you give great tools to talented people, they will use them to make wonderful things. The SJA Fellowship is a one-year, nonresidential program for young creators who are working at the intersection of technology and the liberal arts. Each fellow in our inaugural class receives a stipend, along with resources and tools to help them in their creative, professional, and personal development.
