MIT Solve: Indigenous Communities FellowshipDeadline: June 1, 2021
The Indigenous Communities Fellowship seeks solutions that consider both technology and traditional knowledge to support and scale positive impact. For 2021, Solve welcomes Native-led solutions that:
* Increase access to community wealth, including through access to new economic sectors and diverse forms of capital
* Support culturally-grounded K-16 education, including language, cultural revitalization, and non-traditional learners
* Provide greater access to healthy and sovereign food, sustainable energy, and safe water
* Improve healthcare access and outcomes, including around telehealth, health systems infrastructure, and availability of traditional and Western medicines
Amount: A $10,000 grant will be provided to each fellow.
Note: Innovators own and retain the rights to their work, technology, data, and intellectual property—the Indigenous Communities Fellowship serves to provide Native innovators with the support and resources they need to advance their work.
Eligibility: Native innovators across the US may apply.
