Processing Foundation Fellowship Program 2020 Stipend Available



The Fellowship program has sponsored inspired, ambitious, and visionary work from artists, designers, activists, educators, engineers, researchers, coders, and collectives—and many combinations of these—in projects that conceive a new direction for what Processing as a software and a community can do.

Fellowships are an essential element of the Processing Foundation’s work toward developing tools of empowerment and access, and in nurturing the needs of the communities who use our software. Fellowships are self-initiated projects proposed by members of our community, which we support with mentorship; infrastructural, technical, and practical resources; and community connections. The Foundation chooses a cohort for the year that comprises a range of distinct and dynamic work, and much of our decisions are based not only on the strength of the proposal, but how we feel we can best support the fellow in the trajectory of their practice.

Benefits

The stipend for the 2020 Fellowship is $3,000 USD, calculated at $30 per hour for 100 total hours. Payment of the stipend will be made in 50% installments: $1,500 USD paid at the start of your fellowship, and the remaining $1,500 USD upon its completion.

A fellow must complete the requirements of the fellowship for the stipend to be paid in full.

Eligibility

We are open to applicants from all backgrounds and skill levels, and support proposals that involve investigations into what a fellow may not already know how to do. We are attentive to proposals that demonstrate enthusiasm, innovation, and the evolution of a fellow’s practice rather than their pre-existing technical skills. We choose projects that will have a significant impact on the fellow’s practice, offering the fellow much-needed resources and support.

Application Deadline: December 19, 2019.
