Program Announcement: XR for Change Fellowships
 
Games for Change (G4C) seeks two Fellows to participate in our XR for Change initiative and gain essential knowledge and experience to position them for careers in the immersive media, technology, and social impact sector.

The XR for Change program is a year-round initiative that brings together XR developers, media makers, storytellers, researchers, technology companies and users to create and share experiences that can improve people’s lives and further positive social change.
 
Position Details:
 
Fellows will become part of the G4C team and be mentored and have unique work experience while engaging in research, writing, curation, and event production over the course of six months, and participate in generating a white paper study of the state of XR and social impact to guide future investment in the field. Each Fellow will receive a monthly stipend and is expected to make a commitment of 25-30 hours per week.
