Moringa
Fellowship
You found your next opportunity.
As a Moringa Fellow, you’ll work closely with a cross-functional cohort and mentors to develop, design, and build a digital product experience.

How the program works

The Moringa Fellowship will span 11 weeks, beginning on July 6, 2020. Working closely and remotely with other fellows and mentors, you'll build a digital product solution to address the health, social, and economic consequences caused by COVID-19.

All fellows will be expected to commit up to 20 hours each week, though you'll likely spend less time than that week-over-week. Additionally, schedules will be flexible and agreed upon with all fellows and mentors during the first week.

Frequently asked questions

What will the interview process look like?
All applications are due on June 15th, 2020 at 11:59PM (PST). Within a few days of the deadline, we will evaluate all submissions and invite a subset of applicants to a final round phone or video call with one of our volunteers.

Afterwards, we will select and extend offers to three fellows, one from each discipline. Offers will be sent out no later than June 26th, and they will expire on June 29th, 2020.

Note: Given the rigorous timeline of this fellowship, we unfortunately cannot extend the offer deadline. However, we are more than happy to be a resource as you evaluate your options.
Who will be mentoring me?
We'll pair you with a mentor who shares our values and has at least 2 years of full-time experience in your discipline. For example, the Product Design Fellow will be partnered with someone who has at least 2 years of full-time Product Design experience.
Is this a full-time program?
This is a part-time program. You won't spend more than 20 hours a week on this fellowship, and we anticipate that you'll often spend less.
When will I get paid?
As a fellow, you will be paid a $5300 stipend (not deducting taxes.) The stipend will be split into biweekly payments.

Note: If we exceed our fundraising goal, all additional funds will go towards fellow stipends.
