Opportunity: Data for Impact Fellowship

SocialCops announces the launch of the Data for Impact Fellowship - a program that aims to bring together enterprising future leaders and experienced government decision-makers in solving some of India's most critical problems through the power of data. 

"The Fellowship is a platform for all enterprising minds who believe in the power of data and technology for solving some of the world's most critical problems," says Prukalpa

Sankar, co- founder of SocialCops.

"In the past 3 years of working with the government and various social development organizations, we have observed a striking gap.

There is a need for individuals who can bring in diverse set of skills to use data for driving decisions. At the same time, we also came across a lot of passionate individuals with diverse skills wanting to create an impact. That's when we felt the need to launch the Data for Impact Fellowship," adds Sankar.

"A Data for Impact Fellow might help create data-driven village development plans with a remote District Collector, build dashboards to track the performance of various ministries with institutions like Niti Aayog, or even use data intelligence to implement a national-level program with a Union Minister," says Richa Verma, Resident Entrepreneur at SocialCops.

Fellows will have unprecedented access, working alongside government leaders, senior economists, civil servants and experts to create high-impact, scalable, data-driven solutions to real problems. They will also receive continual mentorship from the SocialCops team in leveraging technology and data to implement their solutions effectively.

Applications for the Data for Impact Fellowship are open and accepted on a rolling basis.
