The Strategic Data Project Fellowship application is now open for Fall 2019 – Summer 2021! The Strategic Project (SDP), a program of the Center for Education Policy Research (CEPR) at Harvard University, finds and develops data leaders to uncover trends, measure solutions, and effectively communicate evidence to stakeholders in education. The prestigious SDP Fellowship program provides a unique opportunity for passionate quantitative researchers and data strategists who want to put their skills to work to improve public education. SDP Fellows are placed in school systems and education organizations across the country as full-time employees for two years, where they will effect positive change while accumulating skills and experiences that can advance their careers. Throughout the fellowship, fellows receive in-person and online training, have access to SDP's network of more than 250 data leaders, and complete an actionable capstone project in response to an analytic challenge the agency is facing. The Strategic Data Project is currently searching for the next generation of fellows for Cohort 11 (Fall 2019 – Summer 2021). Candidates should possess a strong quantitative skillset as well as communication skills, have 3 or more years of work experience, be on track to have completed a master’s degree or higher by summer 2019, and have a passion for improving educational outcomes for students.
