Information Futures Fellowship

This sounds an interesting opportunity - and libraries are specifically included!
"The Information Futures Fellowship is a novel opportunity for practitioners in public health, healthcare, community organizations, media, policy, design and other fields who are actively working on responses to the ongoing information crisis. The six-month fellowship provides these practitioners with the resources, time, research partners, training and peer network to develop new ideas, evaluate existing programs or design and test novel interventions." Th eFellowship is offered by Brown University in the USA, but you don't have to live in the States for the whole 6 months.
"The Information Futures fellowship is designed for practitioners with at least 5-10 years of experience and a proven track record in areas including, but not limited to: policy making, public health, libraries, education, communications, design, fact checking, journalism, healthcare, community leadership, research or government." 

There is a salary (though only if your employer does not pay your wages while you are on the Fellowship) and $5000 expenses for those outside the USA (less for those within the USA). Deadline for applications is August 15 2022. Go to
