The Strategic Data Project (SDP) is now accepting applications for Cohort 7 of the SDP Fellowship program. The anticipated start date for the two-year program is Monday, September 14, 2015.
The SDP Fellowship is a premier professional development experience led by an accomplished team at the Center for Education Policy Research at Harvard University. The two-year program develops talented data strategists in school systems, state education departments, and nonprofit providers. By participating in the fellowship, both fellows and their host agencies will grow advanced analytic capacity, develop clear priorities and plans for data and data systems, build organizational willingness to use data for decision-making, and uncover valuable insight about performance. Together with SDP, these leaders are building a growing, national network focused on improving student outcomes in America’s public schools.
SDP Fellows are:
- entrepreneurial change agents dedicated to transforming how key policy and management decisions are made in public education.
- thought partners that enable education agencies to break through strategic issues that benefit from robust analyses.
- talented data strategists that lead and support key projects in their placement agency.
- key contributors in a growing network of analytic leaders committed to impacting education reform through research and data.
The priority deadline for applications is March 16, 2015. Applications received after the priority deadline will be reviewed on a rolling basis. The final application deadline is Monday, June 16 at 11:59 PM.
