The Bassel Khartabil Free Culture Fellowship is accepting applications until March 24th. The fellowship awards $50,000 and support to an outstanding individual developing open culture in their communities.
Fellows are expected to lead projects or initiatives that will catalyze free culture, radical sharing, free knowledge, remix, collaboration, courage, optimism, and humanity. Special consideration will be given to applicants operating within closed societies, under adverse circumstances, and in developing economies where other forms of support are scarce.
Fellowships are based on renewable one year terms offering a stipend, technological funds, mentorship, and much more. The fellowship is open to small teams and individuals worldwide. The application process and more information on the project can be found here.
