TechChange is excited to announce a summer fellowship program for recent graduates and rising college juniors and seniors. The fellowship will provide practical training in web development as well as a unique exposure to a range of applications and organizations using technology to tackle a variety of global challenges — from creating prosthetic limbs with a 3D printer to combating malaria with mobile devices.
As a fellow you will spend three months designing and implementing a web development project related to education, technology, and social good. TechChange staff will provide training, mentorship, and a series of events to support you in this process.
The fellowship also includes:
- One-on-one mentorship with TechChange staff

- A $2,000 monthly stipend for 3 months
- A round-trip plane ticket to DC from a location within the US

You have a solid foundation in web development or object-oriented programming, but you’re looking to expand your skills and understand how they might be applied to projects that address disease, hunger, unemployment, poverty, natural disasters, and other pressing issues.

- An element of achievement – you must have done remarkably well in your chosen field, be it academics, sports, music or arts
- An element of purpose – the purpose for which you will use the scholarship amount

இவன் இருக்கப் பெற்றவன்
இவன் இல்லாதவன் என
பேதம் பார்ப்பதில்லை வெற்றி!
அதனுடன் உன் உறவு எப்படி
ஏற்றமும் இறக்கமும் இருக்கும்!
அதை முடிப்பதென்றால் சாதாரணமா?
பணம் படைத்தவர்களால் மட்டுமே சாத்தியம்?
உன்னை நீயே தாழ்த்திக் கொண்டு
உரை நிகழ்த்துவதை முதலில் விடு!
குறிக்கோள் ஒன்றைத் தேர்ந்தெடு
அதை எக்காரணம் கொண்டும்
விழ நேரிடும் ஆனாலும்
எழும் சக்தி கிடைக்கும் உனக்கு!
ஜெயிக்கப் பிறந்தவன் நான்
காந்தி, கலாம் சொல்லை
செல்லும் பாதையாக்கு! நீ
வாழ்ந்து காட்டுவாய், வரலாறாய்!
