Earn USD$ 60,000 Stipend: Mozilla Fellowships 2019/2020 for Africans
Mozilla Fellowships is seeking technologists, activists, policy experts, and scientists who are building a more humane digital world.
Mozilla Fellows work on the front lines of internet health, at a time when the internet is entwined with everything from elections and free expression to justice and personal safety. Fellows ensure the internet remains a force for good — empowerment, equality, access — and also combat online ills, like abuse, exclusion, and closed systems.
Application Deadline: Monday April 8, 2019 at 5:00pm ET
The funding for each fellow is based on the fellowship focus area (i.e. science, policy, open web). The stipend for researchers and technology activists is $60,000 USD.
In addition to a monthly stipend, fellows may be eligible for additional benefits, such as funding to support health care costs, childcare, fellowship-related travel, equipment, continued learning, and project costs. Health insurance is not provided by Mozilla for fellows. Supplements for health care and child care will depend on family situations.
To fully participate in the fellowship experience, Mozilla Fellows need to travel to Mozilla-hosted events as well as other meetings, conferences, and/or events related to their project(s). Here are some travel dates expected for 2019-2020 Mozilla Fellows:
- Onboarding + Mozfest: Oct 21 – 27, 2019 (London)
- Mozilla All Hands: Jan 27 – Feb 1, 2020 (Berlin)
- Mozilla All Hands: June 15 – 20, 2020 (Toronto)
Part 1 of the applications closes on Monday April 8, 2019 at 5:00pm ET. Below, meet a handful of current Mozilla Fellows:
