About The Mozilla Fellowship:
Mozilla is seeking technologists, activists, policy experts, and scientists who are building a more humane digital world.
Mozilla Fellowships are a transformative experience for emerging leaders concerned with making the internet a safer, more accessible resource for everyone. Fellows expand their network and sphere of influence; design impactful projects with the potential to reach millions, and learn from and collaborate with a global community of thousands of Mozillians.
Mozilla fellowships provide resources, tools, community, and amplification to those building a more humane digital world. During their tenure, Fellows use their skill sets- in technology, in activism, in science, in policy- to design products, run campaigns, influence policy and ultimately lay the groundwork for a more open and inclusive internet.
Specifically, Mozilla is seeking Fellows who identify with one of three profiles:
- Open web activists: Individuals addressing issues like privacy, security, and inclusion online. These Fellows will embed at leading human rights and civil society organizations from around the world, working alongside the organizations and also exchanging advocacy and technical insights among each other.
- Tech policy professionals: Individuals who examine the interplay of technology and public policy — and craft legal, academic, and governmental solutions.
- Scientists and researchers: Individuals who infuse open-source practices and principles into scientific research. These Fellows are based at the research institution with which they are currently affiliated.
- 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 Rs. 41,81,340 ($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.
