Moringa Fellowship

We reached our goal and have closed this campaign. Thank you so much for your support! 

What we're doing
We’re providing a short-term professional development opportunity for underrepresented, early career professionals in tech. Over the course of 11 weeks, our fellows will work with mentors to design and build a digital product solution that addresses an issue related to the health, social, and economic consequences caused by COVID-19.

For more information, please visit our website .

Why we're doing this
COVID-19 is, by and large, defining our experiences in 2020 — from how we interact with others to the ways we navigate economic and political systems. Within that, we are observing many tech companies struggle to weather the financial impact of COVID-19, which has subsequently resulted in the rescindment of many product development internships.

Given that internship experiences enhance employability, it’s imperative we continue to extend career pathways by supporting early career professionals, especially those who remain underserved and overlooked. To do so, we’re developing a fellowship for those who’ve had their internships rescinded.

What your contribution does
We’re a volunteer run organization. Your donation will go towards:
1. Three student stipends, totaling $5300 each (not deducting taxes)
2. Operational costs
3. Reusable tools for other non-profits and the communities they serve

Note: If we exceed our goal, all additional funds raised will go towards student stipends.

For a full breakdown of our costs, please review this document .

How much you should donate
Donations of any amount are greatly appreciated. To that end, if you donate:
1. $250 or more, you will receive a special thank you letter and newsletter updates
2. $500 or more, you will receive a special thank you letter, newsletter updates, and an invitation to our fellows' final presentation
3. $1000 or more, you will receive a special thank you letter, newsletter updates, an invitation to our fellows' final presentation, and an opportunity to shape the future of this fellowship

Thank you for your support!
