About Mozilla Fellowships 2019-2020
Mozilla Fellowships are a transformative experience for emerging leaders concerned with making the internet a safer, more accessible resource for everyone. Fellows expand their network and sphere of influence; design impactful projects with the potential to reach millions; and learn from and collaborate with a global community of thousands of Mozillians.
Mozilla fellowships provide resources, tools, community and amplification to those building a more humane digital world. During their tenure, Fellows use their skill sets — in technology, in activism, in science, in policy — to design products, run campaigns, influence policy and ultimately lay the groundwork for a more open and inclusive internet.
The application for a 2019-2020 Mozilla Fellowship is a two part process: LOI and full application. A completed LOI submitted using Mozilla’s Fluxx portal is required of all applicants for the Mozilla Fellowship program. The deadline to submit a LOI is Monday, April 8, 2019 at 5:00 PM EDT.
You will receive a response via email no later than April 18, 2019. Successful LOIs will be invited to submit a full application (part two). The deadline for the full application will be Monday May 6, 2019 at 5:00 EDT.
All applications are reviewed by a restricted panel of reviewers made up of Mozilla staff, organizational partners, and other experts in the discipline(s) of the application. You may also be invited to participate in an interview.
Who are Mozilla Fellows?
They are working to stop the spread of misinformation, to put individuals in control of their data, and to keep artificial intelligence accountable. They are leaders who ensure smart cities and next-generation voice technology are diverse and equitable, and who conduct open research.
Mozilla Fellows fit these profiles:
Open web activists
Fellows who work in the realm of public interest technology, championing issues like privacy, security, ethics in machine decision making, and inclusion online. These open web activists embed at leading human rights and civil society organizations around the world, lending their technical expertise.
Scientists and researchers
Fellows who infuse open-source practices and principles into scientific research. “Science” is defined broadly; Fellows may work in the natural sciences, formal and applied sciences, or humanities, social sciences and library and information sciences. Fellows are based in the research institution with which they are currently affiliated.
Tech policy professionals
Fellows who examine the interplay of technology and public policy, and craft legal, academic, and governmental solutions. These tech policy professionals are independent researchers and are not necessarily matched with a host organization or an institution.

For the 2019-2020 Mozilla Fellowship application, we are particularly interested in applicants whose missions align with our impact goal: “better machine decision making,” or ensuring artificial intelligence is developed with ethics, responsibility, and accountability in mind through an internet health framework.
Applicants should be working on initiatives related to online privacy or security; openness; decentralization, digital inclusion; and/or web literacy.
