Mozilla is launching the new Ford-Mozilla Open Web Fellowship - a
10-month program designed to find emerging technical leaders who have
a passion for Internet policy and advocacy.
They're in the midst of recruiting qualified applicants, so please
share information about the program far and wide!
Here's a bit more about the program:
* Good candidates are developers, technologists, hackers and data
crunchers - policy and politics expertise not required, but we're
looking for interest in the advocacy space, in making good change
happen for the Internet.
* The fellows will spend 10 months embedded in one of our host
organizations: the American Civil Liberties Union, Public Knowledge,
Free Press, the Open Technology Institute, and Amnesty International.
* Fellows will be immersed in projects that create better technical
understanding among civil society and policy makers.
* Perhaps the most important detail: The Fellowships are paid positions.
The deadline to apply is December 31st. Interested candidates can
learn more and apply through
