- 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.
