The Azavea Open Source Fellowship is a 12-week program organized by Azavea that provides competitive fellowships to students and software developers with strong engineering skills that have an interest in working on open source geospatial technology projects. More information can be found at the fellowship’s website.
Azavea is a B Corporation whose mission is to apply geospatial technology for civic, social, and environmental impact while advancing the state-of-the-art. We are deeply committed to open source software and manage several large open source projects, including: GeoTrellis, DistrictBuilder, OpenTreeMap, Model My Watershed, OpenDataPhilly, Open Transit Indicators, and many others. We also contribute to a number of open source projects we do not run, and value being contributing members of the open source community.
ABOUT THE AZAVEA OPEN SOURCE SOFTWARE ENGINEERING FELLOWSHIP
The fellowship program is 12 weeks long and matches software engineering fellows to open source projects at Azavea. We have already assembled a list of potential projects, and we’re looking forward to hearing about your skills and interests.
Fellows work closely with experienced Azavea mentors to expand on software engineering and design skills while contributing to open source projects for 3-months during the summer. Applicants can either choose a project from the Proposed Projects list or submit their own project idea.
This paid fellowship program is open to full-time or part-time students, those transitioning careers, or professionals that want to expand their knowledge in open source and geospatial. You are required to be over 18 years old and have some experience with software development, either through schooling or through experience.
