The Ford Foundation and Mozilla have come together to announce the Ford Mozilla Open Web Fellowship program designed to find emerging technical leaders who have a passion for Internet policy and advocacy. The fellowship will commence from 15 February 2015 for a duration of 10 months to create better technical understanding among civil society and policy makers. It will also create a stronger affirmative agenda that creates better public awareness of Internet policy issues, and improved cross-sector coordination.

- Public Knowledge.
- Amnesty International.
- Free Press.

A stipend of $60,000 will be paid in 10 monthly installments. In addition to that Fellowship also provides supplements for housing, childcare, health insurance, moving expenses, and helps pay for research/equipment and travel expenses.
