Mozilla has launched its MDN Fellowship program with the aim of developing apps, API descriptions and curriculum on the Mozilla Developer Network. Apply by April 1st if you are interested.
Billed as a pilot the 2015 MDN Fellowship is a seven-week program which requires a 5-10 hour per week commitment from participants.
