About the Program
The Open Web Fellows program – a collaboration between the Ford Foundation and Mozilla – is a 10-month fellowship program that brings together technology talent and civil society organizations from around the world to advance and protect the open internet.
The program aims to:
- Increase public awareness and understanding of internet policy issues
- Support and enable career paths in the internet policy and advocacy sectors
- Celebrate and nurture a vibrant network of internet advocacy organizations
Fellows are makers and doers passionate about the open internet. They may bring specialities in data visualization, design, development, storytelling, research or policy analysis. While they may not have previous experience with internet advocacy, policy or activism, they are comfortable performing as technologists, experimenters and curious contributors to the open internet movement.
