Shuttleworth Foundation Fellowship.
The Shuttleworth Foundation offers fellowships to individuals to implement their innovative idea for social change. We are most interested in exceptional ideas at the intersection between technology, knowledge, and learning, with openness being the key requirement.
The personal investment you have to make in contemplating this fellowship is substantial – you have to really, honestly and purposefully think through what your contribution to positive social change will be and that is tough. However, it could be the first step toward realizing your big vision.
