Internship: Device Affordability 2022
The Alliance for Affordable Internet (A4AI) is conducting further research into the affordability of internet-capable devices, such as smartphones, tablets, and computers, in low- and middle-income countries with the ambition to publish world-leading datasets on affordability and make policy recommendations to governments and regulators on how to improve device affordability.
To support the development of this project, the Web Foundation is seeking three part-time or two full-time (at least 0.5 FTE) remote interns to join the team for a period of time around two months (ideally, June to July).
Sustainable Access Fellowship
The Alliance for Affordable Internet (A4AI) is expanding its research and advocacy efforts in the realm of ‘sustainable access’ and understanding the ecological impacts of a mission for
universal internet access. The scope of this fellowship is flexible but includes a focus on e-waste and the circular economy as a core project and must prioritise the experiences of people living in low- and middle-income countries.
To support this effort, the Web Foundation seeks a postgraduate fellow (working at least 0.4 FTE) to join the team for a period of time around two to three months (ideally, July to September). Candidates can be located anywhere in the world.
