The Emerging Technology Fellowship Program (ETFP) is now accepting applications for its next round of fellows! The deadline to submit an application is Wednesday, July 1st.

Our global Internet community constantly faces new threats, including more advanced control mechanisms and increasingly powerful censorship systems that seek to manipulate what netizens can see and do online.

A sort of catchall fellowship, ETFP provides support primarily to individuals with new or novel approaches to addressing these emerging threats to global Internet freedom, with focuses ranging from improving access to information to increasing privacy and security.

As the internet landscape continues to evolve, new solutions and fresh, outside-the-box approaches are needed to counter and preempt enemies of a free and open Internet. The ETFP is an incubator for these sorts of ideas, tools, and research to flourish.

This is the ETFP in a nutshell. To learn more and apply, click here.
