Mozilla Fellows for Tech + Society Fellowship 2024 for experienced technologists worldwide (Fully Funded)

Applications for the 2024 Mozilla Fellows for Tech + Society Fellowship are now available.This fellowship is centered on the interface of technology and civil society, and it arises in part due to the power—and resource—imbalance that public interest technologists and civil society organizations in the Global Majority face.

Critical civil society organizations fight inequality, defend the public, and collaborate with government to serve citizens. In an era of pervasive technology, it is critical that civil society seek to address societal concerns as they intersect with the digital world. Increasing collaborative effect at the interface of technology and society will help to strengthen the relevance and sustainability of public interest movements and technologists—as well as contribute to the advancement of a more human-centered internet.
