Call for applications for Mozilla Fellowship Programme 2019-2020. The duration of the Mozilla Fellowships is 10-month. Mozilla Fellowships are a transformative experience for emerging leaders concerned with making the internet a safer, more accessible resource for everyone. Fellows expand their network and sphere of influence; design impactful projects with the potential to reach millions, and learn from and collaborate with a global community of thousands of Mozillians.
Mozilla Fellows work on the front lines of internet health, at a time when the internet is entwined with everything from elections and free expression to justice and personal safety. Fellows ensure the internet remains a force for good — empowerment, equality, access — and also combat online ills, like abuse, exclusion, and closed systems.
Mozilla is particularly interested in individuals whose expertise aligns with our 2019 impact goal: “better machine decision making,” or ensuring the artificial intelligence in our lives is designed with responsibility and ethics top of mind. For example: Fellows might research how disinformation spreads on Facebook. Or, build a tool that identifies the blind spots in algorithms that detect cancer. Or, advocate for a “digital bill of rights” that protects individuals from invasive facial recognition technology.
During a 10-month tenure, Mozilla Fellows may run campaigns, build products, and influence policy. Mozilla Fellows hail from a range of disciplines and geographies: They are scientists in the UK, human rights researchers in Germany, tech policy experts in Nigeria, and open-source advocates in New Zealand. The Mozilla Fellowship runs from October 2019 through July 2020.
