Mozilla and the Shuttleworth Foundation seek fellowship applicants
Mozilla Drumbeat and the Shuttleworth Foundation have announced a joint fellowship focused on ‘education for the open web’. According to a post on the Commonspace blog by Mark Surman, executive director of the Mozilla Foundation and former open philanthropy fellow at the Shuttleworth Foundation, the aim of the fellowship "is to find someone with solid, scalable and fresh ideas on how open learning and the open web intertwine."
The two organisations are asking those interested in turning their good ideas into successful initiatives to submit a Drumbeat project proposal. Fellows will receive a grant worth the equivalent of a year's salary with access to travel allowance. They will be able to work from wherever they are currently based and will have access to the Foundations' offices in Cape Town, Silicon Valley, London, Paris, Toronto and Vancouver. The grant will be based on "the Fellow's qualifications, experience and comparable cost of time for their skill level" and potential project funding will also be available.
More details about the joint Mozilla Shuttleworth Fellowship, including application information, are available on the Mozilla Grants web page. The fellowship is open to anyone living in Europe or Brazil and applications must be submitted by the 7th of June, 2010.
