Howard University Fellowship Program
BlueLabs/Howard University Technology/Development Fellowship Program
At BlueLabs, we relish the opportunity to teach, collaborate with, and learn from each one of our fellows. Our fellowship program isn't like most typical DC intern experiences. We ask our fellows to become a part of the BlueLabs family, to work intensively on a wide variety of projects, to undertake their own research, and to help us become a stronger contributor to social good. Our BlueLabs/Howard University fellowship program is currently recruiting applicants for our technology/development team. As a fellow you will be assigned a mentor to help guide you through your time at BlueLabs and ensure you have the resources you need to be successful. We will hold frequent trainings to teach you the tools and skills you need to make meaningful contributions to the work we and our partners do. We will ask a lot of you, and in return we are confident you will leave with a greater understanding of how data, analytics, and technology are changing the world.
Our fellows come from a variety of backgrounds (undergraduate and graduate schools - with majors varying from computer science to politics; public health to classics), and have a wide-array of skills (data and analysis, technical languages, communications experience), but they all have a strong interest in social justice, politics, or advocacy.
Our fellows are paid, full- or part-time, and academic credit is also available.
We are seeking current Howard University students or alumni/ae who are interested in a semester-long, or longer, paid fellowship with BlueLabs. You must have a Howard.edu email address to apply.
We look for the following attributes:
- Interest in using talents and skills for social good
- Great attitude and work ethic
- Ability to prioritize and manage several tasks simultaneously
- Curiosity and a willingness to learn
- Solid critical thinking skills
- Strong organizational and interpersonal skills
Tech/Development Fellows should have the following:
- A strong interest in software development
- Experience working with databases
- Familiarity with one or more of the following: Java, Ruby, Python, Git, HTML, CSS, JQuery, Mobile, SQL
At BlueLabs, we're more than just a team of innovators - we're a family. We're looking for mission-driven individuals, who are willing to invest, collaborate, and engage at high levels, to make our team and the world a better place. We welcome diverse, out-of-the-box thinking, and we strive to provide an ecosystem for innovation and development.
