Students are invited to join the Institute for Smart, Secure and Connected Systems (ISSACS) for a free information session about the Public Interest Technology (PIT) Fellowship Friday, Nov. 18, from 12:45 to 1:30 p.m. in the Tinkham Veale University Center first-floor conference room.
The PIT Fellowship is an opportunity for students to explore and engage in the expanding field of public interest technology. The purpose of the fellowship is to enhance public interest technology literacy—the ethical and social implications of technology—through seminars and experiential education, developing a more intentional next generation of technologists and policy makers.
The PIT Fellowship provides students with classroom education, coupled with hands-on, experiential education through engagement on relevant projects with local nonprofits and government agencies. The PIT Fellowship is an extracurricular program.
Hosted by ISSACS at Case Western Reserve University, the session will cover program details and commitments, as well as the application and selection process. Lunch will be provided.
