The STS Hub Fellowship program was launched in 2019 on the heels of four successful years of building an STS Hub community. The STS hub allows faculty working at the intersection of science and social justice to join a community of engaged scholars for a year-long fellowship. Over the course of the year, STS Hub Fellows: 

  • Share scholarships 
  • Develop research projects 
  • Engage in new collaborations 
  • Mentor advanced graduate students 
  • Host events and speakers 
  • Participate in shaping the future of the STS Hub

The STS Hub model was co-developed by Martha Kenney in Women & Gender Studies, Laura Mamo in Public Health, and a former postdoctoral fellow at the Health Equity Institute Ugo Edu (UCLA). For one introduction to science, technology and society see Kleinman and Moore (2014).
