by Ka Edong on February 2, 2006

Hello friends,

Hope we find Filipinos who could make a difference through this fellowship.
Do forward.




The Reuters Digital Vision Program (RDVP) at Stanford University is
accepting applications for the 2006-07 academic year (September 2006 –
June 2007). The deadline is April 3, 2006. Fellowships will be awarded
at the end of May, 2006.

The Program

The Digital Vision Program supports social entrepreneurs who seek to
leverage technology-based solutions in the interest of humanitarian,
educational, and sustainable development goals. The Program fosters
interdisciplinary projects and prototyping efforts that address real
needs in underserved communities. For the 2006-07 academic year, the
program will focus on the following broad categories:

– Advancing Financial Services (Microfinance, microinsurance,
remittances, market information, e-commerce)
– Knowledge and Empowerment (Literacy and numeracy,
e-learning and training, e-government, social networks, and community
– Networked Health and Welfare (Health administration, health
research and sciences, public health and safety, telemedicine, relief
services, advocacy)

The core of the Program is a nine-month fellowship that brings
individuals from around the globe to the Stanford University Campus.
Digital Vision Fellows collaborate with faculty, students, private
sector firms, non-government organizations, and most importantly, each
other. Digital Vision Fellows have Visiting Scholar privileges at
Stanford University, including the ability to audit courses. Fellows
also participate in a structured Sanford Digital Vision Program with
weekly meetings, workshops, and seminars.

Fees and Scholarships

The Reuters Foundation and other DV Program partners will award
approximately a dozen full-time fellowships, covering all Stanford
University fees and expenses. Living stipends may be available for
fellows accepted from developing world countries. The Digital Vision
Program also offers “Corporate Fellowships” to individuals from
organizations who continue to perform their full-time professional
duties in their organizations, while participating in the seminars,
workshops, and other organized activities of the DVP. For additional
