Civic Hive Fellowship is a 20-week bootcamp and implementation program designed for early-stage Civic innovators with tech-enabled social problem-solving solutions.
About The Program
Duration: 6 months.
Through a six-month fellowship program focusing on Transparency/Accountability, Civic Participation, and Institutional Efficiency, Civic Hive will employ this process to produce new civic-tech Gen Z leaders.
We will accept various levels of ideas, regardless of scale – local or hyperlocal – and we will be open to the many uses of technology as a channel – radio, text, print, IoT, machine learning, artificial intelligence, or social media.
We’ll also look at the impact the ideas will have on people and public places, the ability of ideas to deliver value in the long run, and the participants’ unwavering spirit.
The Goal of The Program
The goal of the incubation program is to attract additional players into the civic tech space. Under the fellowship program, the Civic Hive project aims to develop a new generation of civic tech leaders who will transform governance.
Successful applicants will go through a series of financial, business, website, and social media management training sessions.
The fellowship program will continue throughout the project in order to develop 12 new innovative and creative civic solutions.
The fellows will be given a platform to present their work, allowing them to meet with potential donors and mentors through BudgIT’s network. During the fellowship, they will be paid a monthly salary of N200,000 and given a workspace.
