The fellows will get an opportunity to participate in practical training in web development along with a unique exposure to a range of applications and organizations using technology to tackle a variety of global challenges — from creating prosthetic limbs with a 3D printer to combating malaria with mobile devices.

The Package

  • A $2,000 monthly stipend for 3 months.
  • Training in Javascript, Node.js, PHP, React, Flux, Backbone.js, database management, and more.
  • Field trips to organizations working in technology and social change.
  • A round-trip plane ticket to DC from a location within the US.

  • Applicants can be non-US citizens based in or outside the USA.
  • Applicants must be a current junior, senior, or a recent graduate.
  • Applicants should be available to spend 3 months period (6 June – 26 August 2016) in the USA.
  • Applicants should have at least one year of experience in computer science or web development.

  • Applicants must have passion to make a difference in the world – interest in international relations, international development, humanitarian work, and social good is a requirement.

Application

Applicants must complete the online form available on the website to submit their entry.

Please Note:

Applicants are encouraged to apply early, as we will be reviewing applications and selecting Fellows on an on-going basis. Applications due February 15, 2016, and fellows will be announced no later than March 11th. The fellowship will run from June 6th – August 26th.
