The Fellowship grant
The Fellowship grant is a way for people involved in Free Software activism to become Fellows, even if they cannot afford the Fellowship contribution.
Despite financial constraints many people in the Free Software community devote a great deal of their time to Free Software activities. For example programming, translating, administrating, organising events, giving talks or advocating Free Software principles at public events. FSFE has now found a way to recognise their efforts and let them become part of the Fellowship.
The grants will be awarded upon evaluation of individual candidacies and will provide a one-year Fellowship subscription.
Who can apply
- Shares the Fellowship and Free Software principles
- Is active in the diffusion, development and improvement of Free Software
- Cannot afford the Fellowship contribution
is welcome to apply for the grant.
How to apply for a Fellowship grant
To apply for the grant is very easy:
Write an e-mail to fellowship (at) fsfeurope (dot) org, where you introduce yourself, explain the reasons why you would like to join the Fellowship, and what you have been doing in the past to support Free Software.
Who made it possible
The Fellowship grant has only been possible thanks to FSFE's supporters In particular, a generous donation from tarent GmbH, finally enabled FSFE to offer the Fellowship grant.
Elmar Geese, CEO at tarent GmbH says: "We grew closer to the Fellowship of FSFE since some of our employees are already Fellows. We know that being a Fellow is a great way to become involved with FSFE and make a real difference for Free Software. We are glad that our contribution will allow other enthusiastic people to become part of the Fellowship."
