Shuttleworth Foundation Fellowship Program

Shuttleworth Foundation seeks applications for the fellowship program offering fellows the freedom and financial ability to bring about the change you envisage for the world as well as an enabling support structure and an existing network of social change agents.
Who Can Apply?

- Anyone who has a plan for social change through innovation (fresh thinking that adds value) in the areas of education and technology.

- Anyone who has a clear vision of a changed (improved) world and their contribution to bringing about this change.

- The fellowship is not limited to any specific geographic location. However, applicants must be fluent in English.

- Fellowship applicants must have attained the age of majority by the date of application.


The Foundation does not have strictly defined areas of funding as the foundation found this restrictive as people do not always fit into boxes.

Previous successful application have come from individuals working in the following areas:

- Communication and Analytical Skills in Education

- Intellectual Property Rights

- Open and Collaborative Educational Resources

- Telecommunications

- Open Philanthropy

- Open Science

The fellowship is not an academic fellowship aimed at research, although research is not excluded. Preference will be given to action based research or practical implementations of innovative ideas.

The Foundation will support the Fellow to take their good ideas and turn them into successful initiatives. The fellow will also be part of a continually growing pool of established alumni network to share learnings and experiences.

Grant Value

The equivalent of a year’s salary, a contribution towards expenses plus access to a travel allowance. In addition, the fellow will have access to potential project funding from the Foundation, which will match the Fellow’s personal investment in projects by at least ten fold. The total grant amount will be based on the Fellow’s qualifications, experience and comparable cost of time for their skill level.


1 year, with the possibility of renewal, based on review.

Application Procedure

Applications are accepted throughout the year. The applications are reviewed in May for September intake and November for March intake.

Last date for submission of applications for March Intake is November 1.
