Applications being Accepted - Stanford Reuters Digital Vision Fellowship


ANNOUNCEMENT The Digital Vision Program (RDVP) at Stanford University is accepting applications for the 2006-07 academic year (September 2006 - June 2007). The deadline is April 3, 2006. Fellowships will be awarded at the end of May, 2006.

THE PROGRAM The Digital Vision Program supports social entrepreneurs who seek to leverage technology-based solutions in the interest of humanitarian, educational, and sustainable development goals. The Program fosters interdisciplinary projects and prototyping efforts that address real needs in underserved communities.

For the 2006-07 academic year, the program will focus on the following broad categories: - Advancing Financial Services (Microfinance, microinsurance, remittances, market information, e-commerce). - Knowledge and Empowerment (Literacy and numeracy, e-learning and training, e-government, social networks, and community building) - Networked Health and Welfare (Health administration, health research and sciences, public health and safety, telemedicine, relief services, advocacy). The core of the Program is a nine-month fellowship that brings individuals from around the globe to the Stanford University Campus.

Digital Vision Fellows collaborate with faculty, students, private sector firms, non-government organizations, and most importantly, each other. Digital Vision Fellows have Visiting Scholar privileges at Stanford University, including the ability to audit courses.

Fellows also participate in a structured Sanford Digital Vision Program with weekly meetings, workshops, and seminars. FEES AND SCHOLARSHIPS The DV Program and its partners will award approximately a dozen full-time fellowships, covering all Stanford University fees and expenses. Living stipends may be available for fellows accepted from developing world countries.

The Digital Vision Program also offers "Corporate Fellowships" to individuals from organizations who continue to perform their full-time professional duties in their organizations, while participating in the seminars, workshops and other organized activates of the DVP.
