Mozilla Fellows hail from a range of disciplines and geographies: They are policymakers in Kenya, journalists in Brazil, engineers in Germany, privacy activists in the United States, and data scientists in the Netherlands. Fellows work on individual projects, but also collaborate on cross-disciplinary solutions to the internet’s biggest challenges.

Mozilla Fellowships are a transformative experience for emerging leaders concerned with making the internet a safer, more accessible resource for everyone.

Applications are ongoing to the Women PeaceMakers Fellowship Program 2018-19. The Women PeaceMakers Program (WPM) offers a unique opportunity for women building peace to engage in a cycle of learning, practice, and reflection through participation in a 10-month fellowship. The internationally-renowned Women PeaceMakers program is honoring 16 years of documenting the diverse roles women play in peacebuilding.

Knowing the power of women’s full participation in peace and security decision-making to building more durable peace, the Women PeaceMakers Fellowship aims to build stronger, more effective collaborations between women peacebuilders from conflict-affected communities and their international partners. The Women PeaceMakers program is based at the Institute for Peace and Justice (IPJ) at the University of San Diego’s Kroc School of Peace Studies.

Fellowship:

Four Women PeaceMakers and four individual international partners will be selected as a cohort to build mutual learning and stronger modes of engagement between women building peace (“insiders”) and international actors (“outsiders”) working to end cycles of violence.

During the 10-month fellowship, the program will focus on women’s formal participation in national and subnational peace negotiations to answer the question: How can Women PeaceMakers and international partners build more effective local/global collaborations that support women’s meaningful participation in peace negotiations?

Benefits:

There is no cost to participate in the Women PeaceMakers Program. Selected peacemakers will receive a per diem to cover basic living costs during the residency. This funding is to be used for meals and incidentals, and any local transportation needs apart from residency activities.

The program provides all funding related to securing a visa, travel and airfare to and from San Diego at the beginning and end of the residency, and lodging throughout the seven weeks. The program encourages applicants to seek supplemental funding from other sources if needed, although the funding provided by the IPJ for those selected will be sufficient for the full seven weeks.

Eligibility:

Applicants for the Women PeaceMakers fellowship must:

  • Have worked for 5-10+ years as a peacebuilder and have worked directly in formal mediation and peace negotiation processes as members of conflict parties in the negotiations, or as formal mediators to national or subnational peace processes;
  • Held a significant leadership role in the mediation process, and/or of a peacebuilding organization, network, or movement;
  • Demonstrates peacebuilding/peacemaking skills and attitudes;
  • Be in a position to participate in all activities during the 10-month fellowship and apply what is learned at the conclusion of the residency program;
  • Demonstrate local credibility and a strong social network within her country/community of practice;
  • Speak sufficient English to relate personal experiences. Written English is not necessary

Requirements:

  • Collaboration with International Partner :One of the most significant goals of the program is to work with an International Partner to exchange ideas and identify strategies to build more effective local/global collaborations to support women’s participation in local and global peace negotiations. Each Woman PeaceMaker will communicate at a minimum once a month either in person or virtually throughout the residency to identify and achieve joint learning goals. In addition, Women PeaceMakers will work directly with International Partners and program staff during an intensive one-week Learning Lab.
  • Documenting Lessons Learned in Peacebuilding: ?Throughout the residency, each Woman PeaceMaker will work with a Peace Researcher to develop a case study which documents her experience in formal mediation and peace negotiations.
  • Localization Initiative: ?Women PeaceMakers are invited to design a series of consultations in their home country to share and gain stakeholder and community input on the Partnership Compact. In particular, these will be geared to engage local peacebuilders and international partners working in the Woman PeaceMaker’s context. Funding of up to $7,500 to support the initiative she designs will be contingent upon successfully meeting the requirements of the fellowship.
  • Public Presentations: ?Women PeaceMakers will share their work with a range of audiences at the University of San Diego and throughout Southern California.
  • Travel after the Residency: ?Applicants should expect to be involved with full-time program activities throughout the 7-week period, and should not schedule any conflicting engagements elsewhere in the U.S. or overseas. PeaceMakers should also commit to dedicate sufficient time to conduct the localization initiatives in June/July 2019.

Applications are open for the Future Global Leaders Fellowship Program 2018. The Future Global Leaders Fellowship annually selects the world’s top first-generation university students and, over the course of a 3-year program, primes them for induction into the?Fortis Society?–?the world’s first private network of diverse leaders committed to one another’s success and to a better world.

The FGL Fellowship officially starts in early August?with a?(mandatory)?intensive 20-day leadership training focused on a rigorous leadership curriculum and building strong bonds by overcoming extreme physical and mental challenges in the wilderness.

Upon completion of the program, FGL Fellows are inducted into the?Fortis Society?–?the world’s first private network of diverse leaders committed to one another’s success and to a better world.?The goal of the Fortis Society is to connect future leaders –?united by their merit, not privilege?– by creating a formidable global network through which they will help each other reach the?highest levels of success, power, and global influence.

Benefits:

  • Leadership Training: The summer after their freshman year,?FGL Fellows complete an intensive three-week training with the?National Outdoor Leadership School?in the US. Together they are taught a rigorous leadership curriculum and build strong relationships by overcoming extreme physical/mental challenges in the wild. NOLS alumni include NASA teams, Fortune 500 teams, and Wharton/Harvard MBA’s.

  • Global Internship Funding: FLF?does not?match FGL Fellows with internships. Fellows secure a top-tier internship abroad (i.e. outside of their country of birth, heritage, and residence) and we provide customized coaching and funding to cover internship costs not met by the host company/scholarships. Fellows have previously secured internships in 30+ countries at companies like Goldman Sachs, Facebook, Google, UN, Grameen Bank, BNP Paribas,?US Embassies, Clinton Foundation, etc.

Applications are ongoing for the John S. Knight Journalism Fellowships 2018. The JSK Journalism Fellowships supports diverse journalists from around the world who are deeply engaged in exploring solutions to the most urgent issues facing journalism. Innovation, entrepreneurship, and leadership in journalism are the foundation of our work, which seeks to improve the quality of news and information reaching the public.

Journalism fellowships at Stanford started in 1966 with a powerful idea: giving journalists broad access to a great university, which would pay off in superb journalism. They grew through the next decades, and in 1984 a $4 million grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation provided a permanent endowment for the program, which we renamed for John S. Knight, who, with his brother James L. Knight, once operated a company that became the largest newspaper chain in the United States.

Benefits:

  • They provide JSK Fellows with several financial benefits, including a stipend of $75,000.
  • In addition to this stipend, they provide a supplement of $15,000 to $40,000 for fellows with children.
  • They also cover the cost of Stanford tuition. They pay for Stanford health care for fellows, spouses, and children, which ranges from $20,000 to $30,000 per family.
  • The total financial support to fellows ranges from $95,000 to $145,000. They also help fellows find housing.

Other benefits of a JSK Fellowship

  • Access to some of the world’s most innovative thinkers and organizations, from technology giants to hot new startups to Stanford’s 100-plus special institutes and centres.
  • Opportunities to join classes taught by top Stanford professors and instructors in a wide range of specialities. It is common for classes to be taught by people who also work in the vanguard of their fields in the private sector.
  • A rich intellectual and cultural campus life, including live theater, music and dance performances and special lectures and events.
  • Fellowship social events where everyone can get to know one another.
  • Spouses and partners are eligible to take some classes and attend many fellowship seminars. Fellows’ children attend excellent Palo Alto-area schools and are included in some fellowship social activities.
  • Exposure to the incredible diversity of worldviews, experiences and cultural traditions that fellows from all over the world bring to the program.
  • New friendships, professional connections and entrepreneurial skills that will continue beyond the 10 months fellows spend at Stanford.

Eligibility:

  • U.S. applicants typically have at least seven years of full-time professional experience; international applicants typically have at least five years of experience.
  • They will consider less experienced applicants who have outstanding achievements. They do not require applicants to have a college degree.
  • They do not accept applications from people working in public information or public relations jobs, for trade and house newsletters or magazines, for government agencies, or in academic positions.

They consider applicants in these categories:

  • Journalists employed by a news organization or freelance journalists.
  • Journalism entrepreneurs and innovators.
  • Journalism business and management executives.
