The Social Science Research Council (SSRC) is pleased to announce the selection of the 2023 Data Fluencies Dissertation Research Grantees. These five researchers—Zhaowen Guo, Sanjana Krishnan, Jason Ludwig, Julian Quiros, and Reed Van Schenck—will each receive $15,000 in grants to develop research on information, data, technology, and social justice.
We received around 120 applications, which underwent a rigorous review by an interdisciplinary panel of experts. These five exemplary projects focus on issues ranging from surveillance, algorithmic discrimination, governance, and platform regulation. All these projects firmly fit the SSRC Data Fluencies Project’s goal of building more just and equitable futures through the responsible use of data and technology.
These awards are possible with generous support from the Mellon Foundation and in partnership with Simon Fraser University’s Digital Democracies Institute.
