Mozilla Tech + Society Fellowship 2024

Deadline: 22nd January, 2024

The American nonprofit Mozilla Foundation was founded with the goal of assisting and guiding the open-source Mozilla project as a whole. Having been established in July 2003, the organization manages the trademarks and copyrights for Mozilla, establishes the rules that direct development, and runs essential infrastructure. It has two taxable subsidiaries: MZLA Technologies Corporation, which hires developers to work on the Mozilla Thunderbird email client and manages its releases, and the Mozilla Corporation, which employs several Mozilla developers and plans the releases of the Mozilla Firefox web browser. The Mozilla Organization, connected to Netscape, established the Mozilla Foundation. The organization’s present headquarters are in Mountain View, California, a Silicon Valley city in the United States.

The Mozilla Foundation describes itself as “a non-profit organization that promotes openness, innovation and participation on the Internet”. The Mozilla Foundation is guided by the Mozilla Manifesto, which lists 10 principles which Mozilla believes “are critical for the Internet to continue to benefit the public good as well as commercial aspects of life.

This fellowship is designed to bring technological strategists and civil society leaders together into collaboration. By pairing technologists [as fellows] with civil society organizations [as host organizations], the program aims to increase the impact of the organizations’ work and enhance their ability to address societal issues that intersect with technology. This is rooted in the idea that both technologists and civil society leaders come to the table with essential expertise: the fellows bring a wealth of technical know-how, while the host organizations bring a deep understanding of how technology broadly — and in some cases AI specifically — is impacting the communities they serve.


  • Mozilla Tech + Society Fellows will receive a stipend of $60,000 USD/year and have access to personal supplements, which are intended to support an individual’s wellbeing.
  • Fellows will also receive access to separate funding to support their individual projects and collaboration with the host organization.


  • Experienced technologists, with a minimum of 3-5 years experience working in a technology-related capacity.
  • Reside in or have work authorization in the country or region of the host organization. Note that organizations have location-specific parameters.
  • Understand relevant cultural nuance and context of the host country. Note that organisms may have language-specific parameters.
  • Be strategically-minded and collaborative-oriented, with experience in identifying problems and solutions at the intersection of technology and social justice issues.
  • Be able to carry out fellowship work to an extent generally consistent with full-time commitment . Engagement length of the fellowship is a minimum of 1.5 years and a maximum of 2 years.
  • Have working fluency in English.
