The Consumer Reports Fellowship funds researchers, technologists, and entrepreneurs to design and scale solutions to the problems facing consumers today. The 8 month, non-residential fellowship includes a generous $50,000 stipend and numerous resources to help fellows bring their research and ideas to reality. We give preference to Fellows whose work makes contributions to the field of public interest tech and/or results in libraries, reference implementations, and open source code.
This is a non-resident fellowship that helps researchers, technologists, and entrepreneurs design and scale solutions to the problems facing consumers today. We support the development of solutions that can concretely benefit consumers- examining everything from the behavior of connected appliances to the data practices of major internet platforms to the harms and benefits of generative AI.
The CR Fellowship allows you to leverage CR’s data and testing infrastructure, work with our reporters,advocates and product teams, and tap into the collective intelligence of our growing community of public interest technologists. Fellows also receive a $50,000 stipend and are positioned with the resources they need to bring their ideas to fruition.
We will be accepting applications in the fall for this Fellowship, at which time we’ll provide greater detail about the application process and selection criteria. In the meantime, we invite prospective fellows to share a bit of information about themselves via our interest form here.
