The goals of the Azavea Open Source Fellowship Program match our company mission.
Azavea is a B Corporation that creates civic geospatial software and data analytics for the web. Our mission is to apply geospatial technology for positive civic, social, and environmental impact while advancing the state-of-the-art through research.
We are deeply committed to open source software and manage several large open source projects, including: GeoTrellis, DistrictBuilder, Raster Foundry, 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.
A fellowship for students and software developers with strong engineering skills that have an interest in working on open source geospatial technology projects.
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.
