Mozilla is providing grants from $5,000 to $10,000 USD to individuals and organizations studying the impact of AI on communities in Eastern and Southern Africa

Do you have an idea for how to study the impact of artificial intelligence (AI) on social justice communities in East and Southern Africa? Apply now for a grant of $5,000-$10,000 USD to join a cohort of researchers whose work will inform Mozilla’s Africa Innovation Mradi’s movement building initiatives.

With the use of artificial intelligence becoming more pervasive worldwide, Mozilla is concerned with how people will be both positively and negatively impacted. We believe that who develops AI and how AI is being deployed is of particular importance to social justice, but we also realize that people working for different social causes don’t necessarily see their concerns reflected in initiatives by Mozilla or other technology or digital policy organizations.

This is why we wish to have a better understanding of the intersections between AI and social justice in various contexts, including for human rights, economic justice, racial justice, community justice, gender justice, disability justice, LGBTQIA+ rights, and environmental justice.

Research conducted under this grant can either take the form of a study of either region, a case study in one country, or a comparative analysis on a similar theme of two or more countries across the same region.

They are also interested in reaching individuals, networks, and/or organizations with whom we have not previously worked.
