We are looking for exceptional individuals who want to work at the intersection of peacebuilding and technology. Training: Fellows will ome together for a joint, week-long training course on participatory methodologies and technology design. The training course will also provide an opportunity for Fellows to meet and share their experiences and expertise.
Mentorship: Fellows will be assigned a lead mentor from Build Up who will support them to develop an action plan for their fellowship, which will identify a set of concrete goals and an end point for their intervention and fellowship support. The lead mentor will then identify two or three other mentors from the Build Peace community who will support the Fellow throughout their fellowship.
Fellows will have an opportunity to present the core technology necessary for their intervention as a challenge to the hackathon held at the Build Peace conference. The hackathon should deliver a prototype, and Fellows will then be matched with pro-bono development support to complete the technology required.
Fellows will receive a grant to cover some of the costs of their intervention. The exact grant amount will be determined on a case-by-case basis depending on the action plan and specific needs of an intervention, but in any case will not exceed 10,000 USD.
