Harvard's Strategic Data Project works with education agencies to find and train data leaders to uncover trends, measure solutions, and effectively communicate evidence to stakeholders. Our inspiring network of system leaders, fellows, and faculty come together to share how to best use data to make a difference in the lives of students. Learn more at https://sdp.cepr.harvard.edu/.

Below you can access the applications for available programs through the Strategic Data Project, including applications for prospective fellows, prospective partners looking to enroll or hire a fellow, and SDP Institute applicants.
