Applications open for the 3C Fellows Program

This is a reminder that applications are open for Cohort 5 of the Cultural Competence in Computing (3C) Fellows Program through March 1. This two-year, virtual, cohort-based, professional development program helps computing and STEM faculty, staff, postdoctoral researchers, graduate students, and professionals: 1)learn more about social science topics (such as identity, intersectionality, racism, bias, and discrimination) and how these topics impact academic environments; and 2)develop sustainable projects (courses, modules, and other activities) at their home institutions that leverage these topics to foster more inclusive and equitable cultures. Guest speakers have included leading experts such as Drs. Ruha Benjamin, Safiya Noble, Eduardo Bonilla-Silva, Lee Baker, Sasha Costanza-Chock, Moya Bailey, Jessie Daniels, and 3C Fellows from prior cohorts.

Join a growing community of ~ 300 educators, scholars, practitioners, postdocs, and grad students who are working to change the computing and STEM landscape.

Important Notes:

  • The deadline for applications is March 1, 2024. Notifications will be sent on or around the first week of April.
  • This program is also open to those in STEM disciplines (e.g., math, engineering, biology, etc.). The topics discussed are not computing specific. Additionally, computing is very interdisciplinary, and since we are focused on the academic environments (and not content), then all can enjoy/benefit.
  • We encourage participation in teams, as it ensures one person is not responsible for this effort (and makes it easier to sustain your deliverable).
    • Please consider including Ph.D. students and postdocs in your team as well.
