Mozilla and USAID are awarding 10 grants from a pool of $250 000 USD to innovation hubs and accredited institutions of higher education in Kenya that embed ethics into computer science programs and curricula.
At least 10 grants of 25 000 USD, or 3 million KSh, will be awarded.
What they fund?
- Mozilla finds, supports, and connects movement partners building a more open, inclusive internet and more trustworthy AI. Through fellowships and awards, we bolster people and bold ideas that can shape a more human-centered internet.
- These leaders build new technology, develop toolkits and curricula, run campaigns, prototype solutions, and influence policy around the globe to:
- Reimagine new norms, policies, infrastructure, and technologies that protect and empower individuals and communities online.
