190

TechChange announced a fully funded summer fellowship program for recent graduates and university students interested in web development and computer science. The deadline for applications is February 15th 2015.

The fellowship will run from June until August 2015. TechChange is a social enterprise that specializes in building online certificate courses for individuals and organizations that want to make a positive difference in the world.

Through the fellowship, the participants will acquire practical knowledge in web development and will be exposed to a range of applications and organizations using technology to tackle a variety of global challenges — from creating prosthetic limbs with a 3D printer to combating malaria with mobile devices.

The fellows will be provided with a round-trip plane ticket to Washington DC where TechChange is based (from a location within the US) and a monthly stipend of 2000 USD for the period of the fellowship.

TechChange fellows will spend three months designing and implementing a web development project related to education, technology, and social welfare. The staff will deliver training, mentorship, and a series of events to provide support to the fellows.

Also included in the fellowship are trainings in Javascript (Node.js), PHP, Python, Django, Backbone.js, database management and field trips to organizations working in technology and social change.

 In order to be eligible for the program, a participant must be a university student (junior, senior) or a recent graduate and have at least one year of experience in computer science or web development.

 Applications should be made online on the TechChange website.
