Program on Science, Technology and Society at Harvard

Harvard Kennedy School of Government | Harvard University

Join the Harvard Kennedy School Program on Science, Technology and Society’s (STS) Undergraduate Fellowship for the fall semester! Join a cohort of peers in diving into the field of STS to grapple with the ways in which science and technology are molding and reflecting ideas of desirable human futures, interacting with the politics of innovation, shaping human rights and inequality, or being subjected to mechanisms of democratic institutions. Learn from and discuss with leading scholars across STS and a diverse range of fields while developing a new set of analytical problem-solving skills. If you ever wanted to better understand opposition to vaccines? Misinformation in a “post-truth” world? How efforts to address climate change emerge at the global level in relation to local interests? The place of science and technology (S&T) in a world increasingly defined by various kinds of “risk”? If you’re interested in any of these questions — or, more broadly, intersections of science, technology, public policy and politics, and society — apply below to join for the fall semester!
