The Shuttleworth Foundation offers fellowships to individuals to support them in implementing their ideas for social change over the course of a year. The foundation is particularly interested in ideas at the intersection between openness, technology, knowledge, and learning—ideas that would enhance access to global knowledge and social and economic development.
Each fellowship provides for generous financial support, equivalent to a full year’s salary based on a fellow’s qualifications, experiences, and comparable cost of time for their skill level. In addition, each fellow will have access to potential project funding from the foundation, which will match a fellow’s personal project investment by at least tenfold. The foundation also provides technological and legal support throughout each project’s development, as well as connections to its network of projects, funders, and institutions.
