The Technology Fellows program is administered by the Internet Freedom unit at the Ford Foundation, which works globally to advance economic and social protections in the Internet environment. Technology Fellows will play a strategic advisory role to the foundation as well as provide practical technical expertise to staff and grantees (Note that this role does NOT include IT and administration responsibilities). Technology Fellows will enable the foundation to better serve the technical needs of grantees, identify emerging opportunities and threats related to technology, help develop networks and communities of social justice mission-driven technology experts, and enrich the diverse perspectives of the thematic areas program experts. As information technology suffuses every aspect of our lives, the Ford Foundation believes that philanthropy has a unique role to play in ensuring that government and public interest organizations truly understand the technical landscape and how developing technologies serve the public interest.
