The Shuttleworth Foundation is glad to announce its Shuttleworth Foundation Fellowship Program. The opportunity is open to international applicants.
The Foundation offers the Shuttleworth Foundation grant and Fellowship to individuals to implement their innovative idea of social change. What they are most interested in are the extraordinary ideas at the interface of technology, knowledge, and learning, where openness is the main requirement.
About the Sponsor: Shuttleworth Foundation
The Shuttleworth Foundation is a small social investor that provides financial resources to dynamic leaders at the forefront of social change. It was established in January 2001 by South African entrepreneur Mark Shuttleworth as an experiment with the purpose of providing funding for people engaged in social change.
They are looking for social innovators who could help improve the world and benefit from another social investment model. They identify extraordinary people, award a scholarship and multiply the amount of their investment in their own projects.
