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