2022 African Union Civic Tech Fund (AUCTF) Civic Tech Fellowship

Deadline: June 15, 2022.

The African Union Civic Tech Fund (AUCTF) is a project funded by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and aiming at evaluating and sustaining effective models in citizens’ participation and policy influence with the support of replicable and/or scalable civic tech initiatives and citizens led transformative action across the African continent.

The AUCTF is offering fellowships for 5 civic tech professionals for a period of minimum 3 months to technically support and to advise beneficiaries awarded the grants for the development of their civic tech initiatives in 7 African countries – Mali, Nigeria, Malawi, Zimbabwe, Uganda, Kenya, Morocco.


The Fund is primarily foreseen for not-for-profit entities registered in any African Union Member States. However, we will also consider applications from for-profit entities. In both cases organisations must be strongly committed to advancing civic participation. Further, each call will have further specifications, for example with a geographic or thematic focus.


  1. Successful applicants will help a broad range of actors scaling up their civic technology initiatives that amplify citizen voices or help keep governments accountable.
  2. Candidates will work with partner organisations selected through the African Civic Tech Fund to test, expand and boost digital tools and platforms empowering citizens.
