P5js fellowship opportunities

The Processing Foundation is currently accepting applications for two new fellowships: the p5.js Editor Lead Fellowship and Processing Community Lead Fellowship. These new Project Lead Fellowships directly support the development and maintenance of Processing and p5.js.

Processing Community Lead Fellowship

The Processing Community Lead Fellowship is a one-year paid fellowship to guide and steward the global, decentralized community formed around the original Processing (Java) software and its ethos.

Processing is a flexible software sketchbook and a language for learning how to code. Since 2001, Processing has promoted software literacy within the visual arts and visual literacy within technology. There are thousands of students, artists, designers, researchers, and hobbyists who use Processing for learning and as a part of their creative practices.

p5.js Editor Lead Fellowship

The p5.js Editor Lead Fellowship is a one-year paid fellowship to maintain and steward the p5.js Editor, hosted at editor.p5js.org.

p5.js is a JavaScript library that starts with the original goal of Processing, to make coding accessible for artists, designers, educators, beginners, and reinterprets this for today’s web. The Editor is free to use and plays an essential role in making p5.js accessible.

About the fellowships

Both new Project Lead Fellowships run for one year, with a stipend of $90,000 and an additional budget of $12,500 for project support, including funds to pay other contributors for their work. The Foundation is committed to finding additional support, advice, or mentorship in areas where fellows would like to grow their skills. The Executive Director, Program Manager, and Finance Manager will make themselves available to support each fellow’s efforts in additional fundraising.

These new Fellowships are an essential element of our Foundation’s work in developing tools of community power, connection, stewardship and in nurturing the aims and needs of the people and communities who use our software.
