Do you have an idea to improve responsible manufacturing and reduce e-waste? Have you started iterating on a blockchain solution? Are you ready to quit your day job to work on Internet of Things privacy and security full-time?

Then apply now for a coveted Shuttleworth Foundation Fellowship, which funds people who re-imagine the world with the values of Free and Open Source Software in education, philanthropy, hardware, and social development.

The Shuttleworth Foundation will pay you to focus on your solution full-time. Even better, they’ll multiply the money you put into your project by a factor of ten or more.

You’ll join people like these working on solutions to the world’s most pressing problems, using innovative information and communication technology.

  • Luka Mustafa is developing Koruza, a 3D printable wireless optical system for connecting buildings up to 100m apart with internet access.
  • Tiffiniy Cheng is helping regular citizens organize action around web freedom through Fight for the Future – innovative and creative usage of technology, messaging and alliance-building.
  • Tarak Loubani is building high-quality, low-cost, open-source, universally accessible medical hardware to end the asymmetry of care, like a $3 stethoscope that meets the same standards as a $300 one.

The Shuttleworth Foundation offers fellowships to individuals to implement their innovative idea for social change. They are most interested in exceptional ideas at the intersection between technology, knowledge and learning, with openness being the key requirement.

If that’s you, apply now!
