The Fellowship grant is a way for people involved in Free Software activism to become Fellows, even if they cannot afford the Fellowship donation.
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. Each month, FSFE will select three candidates and announce the decisions at the beginning of the following month.
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
